Debate surrounding a "Big or Small" Australia has perpetuated many myths about population in Australia - the notion that our nation has a holding capacity which has been reached, that population growth brings with it environmental damage, social and economic costs.

The CEDA research report brings together the best ideas on the various dimensions of a growing, diverse and ageing population. Experts from a range of disciplines have brought their perspectives to create a well-researched picture of Australia now and in the future. This CEDA Report - A Greater Australia - reflects CEDA's commitment to provide independent thought leadership and policy perspective to this debate.

At this report launch, you will hear from authors and have the opportunity to debate their ideas and perspectives. All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the report.
