What We'll Do
The Science Party recognises the inherent dignity and worth of all human beings and believes that everyone holds the same inalienable human rights. We believe that these rights are essential in an inclusive, democratic society, and that these rights should be formalised into law to ensure that they are protected and upheld.

In the 2016 federal election we were featured on the EFA's score card regarding digital rights.

Australia should build new cities if we want to protect our environment and increase quality of life
Our cities are straining. They are sprawling ever further out. This means that we need more transport infrastructure per person as people have to travel further and further. Housing costs are increasingly unaffordable.
But there is a solution: build new cities with new ideas, which is what the Science Party plans to do. We'll build Turing between between Sydney and Canberra on a high-speed rail line.
Science Party policy is to establish a Treaty Organisation to develop a treaty or treaties for ratification by Parliament and Indigenous groups in Australia. This Treaty Organisation will allow for real and meaningful agreements with Governments and traditional owners and groups. Read our policy here.
