Science Party Vision


The Science Party believes that our quality of life is improved primarily through technological developments, sourced through a scientific approach to knowledge in the context of democracy and peace. Technological development is something that we can all be excited about and should try to accelerate. We, as a society and as individuals, should plan for the future in order to maximise the benefit we derive from our technological development. We see innovation, education and economic reforms as key to the success of Australia.
