A Vision for Australia

Report highlighted the 5 core shifts required to achieve a prosperous future.

$2b Affordable Housing Commitment

NAB announced a $2 billion commitment to Affordable Housing, playing our role to address the urban challenges identified in the ANO 2019 report.

Why is this important?

We’re committed to ensuring a prosperous future for Australia, and the Australian National Outlook 2019 report provides a roadmap out to 2060. It highlights the most significant economic, social and environmental challenges that we must address as a nation. The report provides direction by contrasting a future of Slow Decline, where no action is taken, with a positive Outlook Vision, where the challenges are tackled head on.

What do we do?

Australian National Outlook 2019

The Australian National Outlook 2019 is a unique collaboration of CSIRO’s integrated modelling and research with input from NAB and 20 other leading Australian organisations from industry, the not-for-profit and education sectors.

Through a highly collaborative process over two years, participants explored several possible outcomes for the nation in order to help Australians continue to enjoy the best quality of life available and for future generations to have access to even better opportunities.

Two contrasting scenarios for Australia in 2060 were identified:

  1. A ‘slow decline‘, if we continue on existing trends.
  2. A prosperous future economically, socially and environmentally (the ‘Outlook Vision’) that Australia can achieve if we plan and take considered action.

This report shows that the difference between these two scenarios is large and worth fighting for and there are five core shifts that can help Australia get there:

  1. Industry
  2. Urban
  3. Energy
  4. Land
  5. Culture
