Think+DO Tank Foundation

Back in September, 2013 we established a charity, the Think+DO Tank Foundation, through which we are running our community and cultural projects, with your support of course! We are transitioning that work across from Think+DO Tank to the Foundation.

We are thrilled to have this way of experimenting alongside people in the community.

We have made a website for the Foundation that you can find here for your viewing pleasure!


Please stay in touch and follow our progress there. 

You can also support our work with a tax deductible donation here. We deeply appreciate all the support we receive - whether a cash donation or the offer of some of your time. You're welcome to become part of our work!

Community Citizens Training

Think+DO Tank collaborated with the Parramatta City Council and the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) to develop an innovative package of citizenship training materials.

We are excited that Parramatta City Council will soon launch the materials on a Creative Commons Licence.

The training program was the product of experimenting with young people in community and school settings; and with migrants and refugees preparing themselves to assume Australian citizenship. We developed an innovative and "hands on" approach to giving participants an active understanding of governmental structures and ways in which they could participate in public life.

Congratulations to Tanya Owen (Community Capacity Building Officer) and her colleagues at the Parramatta City Council for supporting and developing this innovative program, soon to be released to help all of us to take a more active part in public life in Australia!

Young people envision their communities

The Think+DO Tank proposed a series of consultations with high school students in the Bankstown Local Government Area for the Bankstown City Council. The workshops were carried out between 1 September – 30 November 2009. We worked with over 250 students to uncover their desires for Bankstown, what they value in their communities and to educate them about the role of local, State and Commonwealth governments. A report was provided to Council in January 2010 and we look forward to helping Council to implement our recommendations.
