About Us

Who are we

OurSay.org is an independent organisation started by a team of young people passionate about harnessing the power of social media to revitalise critical participation in Australian democracy. OurSay.org is creating a culture of politically courageous leaders, extended and deeper media reporting and community members who take responsibility and ownership for the issues they care about.

We are based in Melbourne, Australia. To learn more about who we are, please visit The Team section. If you have any questions or would like to chat further email us at [email protected].

Our Vision

A world where citizens own and take responsibility for impacting the issues they care about; where leaders are politically courageous; and where media regularly earns the trust of the public by being genuinely informative.

Our Mission

To improve the culture of public reporting and decision making by involving citizens.

We believe:

  • If citizens are involved, we have representation.
  • If leaders are involved we have impact.
  • If media is involved, we have informed leaders and citizens.

The best decision making only occurs when leaders, media and citizens all play an active role.
