Our Mission

The Foundation publishes research that aims to contribute to a more just, sustainable and peaceful society. Our goal is to gather, interpret and communicate evidence in order to both diagnose the problems we face and propose new solutions to tackle them.

We advocate for ideas and encourage debate, we do not campaign for political parties or candidates. Early focus areas include environmental issues – our first discussion paper is about next generation clean energy – justice reform and drug policy law reform.

March 2019: New Zealand needs to look at innovative ways to decrease carbon emissions. This includes increasing our renewable electricity supply, as demand for electricity will increase with the growth of electric vehicles and as we stop bringing new sources of fossil fuel online.
