360info and SDSN Announce New Collaboration

360info 2 mins read

Public interest journalism initiative 360info has forged a new partnership with the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).

The two organisations will work together to build and strengthen global understanding of practical solutions for sustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


As part of their new joint initiative, the two organisations have collaborated to produce a solutions-focused special report on removing obstacles to implementation of the SDGs in the Indo Pacific region. The report, released today, comes as the mid-point of the SDG implementation. It comprises feature articles, videos and data visualisations by leading experts across the SDSN, and will be available for publication under Creative Commons 4.0. 


Access the report here.


360info’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Andrew Jaspan said 360info is delighted to be working alongside SDSN. We share a very similar remit however our focus is to deliver high-quality content written solely by university researchers worldwide that address the world’s most pressing challenges  - and offer ways to address, mitigate or solve those. 


“Additionally, because we work with researchers from universities in over 100 countries, we are able to draw in the usually marginalised and neglected voices, thinking and research from the developing Global South. Working with the SDSN team allows us to better deliver on this remit and rebalance global narratives.  


“Through our open source global wire service, we are able to support the world’s stretched and under-resourced newsrooms with free access to 360info.  And play our part in displacing poor quality information with reliable, safe and verified content. To date we have over 1,000 newsrooms taking our content and we hope that will increase. In that way, and working with SDSN, we hope we can further amplify the SDG agenda.”

Mandating social housing in new developments key to tackling homelessness crisis

Media release | Monday, 4 December 2023 Mandating social housing in new high density developments is key to tackling the homelessness crisis, Homelessness NSW says. HNSW CEO Dom Rowe says: “We welcome any moves that require social and affordable housing in high density developments near existing transport and services. “We will not be able to build our way out of the worst homelessness crisis in a generation without ensuring that 10 per cent of dwellings are social housing by 2050. “There are 57,000 households on the waitlist for social housing and most of them face a decade-long wait to secure…

Super Members Council

Payday super gets more Australians closer to the dream retirement

The simple change to mandate paying super with wages will deliver more workers the full transformative benefits of Australia’s retirement system. The newly formed Super Members Council (SMC) says outdated laws requiring employers to only pay super quarterly was a key reason many lower paid workers were not getting their super in full and on time. Interim Chair of the Super Members Council Nicola Roxon said the government commitment to switch from quarterly to payday super was a step towards fulfilling super’s policy promise of a financially secure retirement for every worker. “This is a simple change with a big…
