Crescent Think Tank promotes the sharing of knowledge and ideas more openly with all Australians. For too long, thought leadership has been restricted to academia and it can be elitist. However, better ideas for a better future can thrive when knowledge is shared more openly and more democratically.

As an independent, not-for-profit think tank, it’s focus is on informing Australian policy discussions. It is able to do this through it’s network of highly-experienced academics and a clear mandate to generate new ideas and dialogue on the issues of Nation Building, Australian Infrastructure, Socially Responsible Investment and Islamic Finance.

It does this by identifying value propositions that explore ideas, thinking and investment, as well as encourage and ferment support for equitable, inclusive and sustainable economic development of the nation and its infrastructure.

Crescent Think Tank, its events and all academic publications are open and accessible to all members of the public and will be forever. By playing a leading role in opening up new narratives, discussions and cultural exchanges, it is possible to shape a more prosperous future for all. Ultimately, through unity of purposes we may collectively open up the hearts and minds of Australians with new narratives, cultural exchanges, generosity, and education for a more diverse and prosperous community.
