What matters to you?

Map of voting

What do you think are the biggest issues facing Australia and the world today? What is it that matters to you? Maybe it’s finding a solution to climate change, extending lives, giving back to the community. Or perhaps you think we should be discussing the arts more, dealing with education or solving public transport issues. These and many other issues will be explored on a bold new website that has just been launched.

The aim of the University’s What Matters site is to find out what you think are the most significant issues, and to explain what the University’s best and brightest are doing about them.

You are invited to visit the site and join in the conversation, follow the polls and vote for what matters to you. You’ll be able to discover what some of our leading alumni and academics are doing in these important areas. Hear from inspirational members of your alumni community who will share their stories and opinions in video interviews. Those taking part include Anne Crawford (BA ’85 BSW ’87), the founder of the charity Can Too, and award-winning artist Ben Quilty (BVArts ’96).

Each month the website will reveal a selection of five new topics for visitors to vote on, so you can have your say on the most important issues that confront us today.

See what’s on other people’s minds, and share what’s on yours, at sydney.edu.au/what-matters.
