Fusion brings compassionate, evidence-informed policy to the voters of Australia.
Confronting the climate emergency and reversing global warming are critical for our continued prosperity and happiness. Public education, healthcare and scientific research are important investments in our long-term future. Policy should empower citizens, promoting rights and freedoms—including in the digital spaces that are now part of our everyday lives.
Community consultation is also one of our top priorities, and we strive to embody the transparent and accountable democracy we want for our nation.
We are committed to the following six values:
Our vision for a brighter and fairer future for Australia is based on these foundational values, and our policy platform is drawn from them. We recognise that there are times when these values are (or appear to be) in conflict, and this is when our consultation process must be at its most robust.
We were formed in 2021 through an amalgamation of the Science Party, Pirate Party, Secular Party, Vote Planet, and Climate Change Justice Party. Our fusion has expanded our knowledge base and strengthened our organisational capacity, bringing together like-minded people from across the continent.
We contested our first election in May 2022, with Senate candidates in all five mainland states and nine House of Representatives candidates (see below)—a testament to our capacity when working together.
