The 'Building Futures' Project

We’ve all heard the phrase, “What gets measured gets done”, but what happens if we’re measuring the wrong things or not enough of the right things? And what if this unintended consequence is negatively affecting our youth?


Meet our new partners, The Social Outfit

The Social Outfit will soon be opening it's doors in Sydney's inner west. Part design school and part retail store, the initiative will provide education, training and employment opportunities for young people from new migrant and refugee communities.


Celebrating 25 years

This year marks the 25th year that Dusseldorp Forum has been making a positive difference to the lives of young people through stimulating and supporting innovation in learning.

A special message from Teya Dusseldorp

As we enter our 25th year, we are undergoing some exciting changes, including redeveloping our website in line with our renewed strategy. 


The Dusseldorp Forum has a 25 year history of working to improve the learning opportunities for young people throughout Australia. Our vision is that all young people have the skills and knowledge required to build a rewarding future and the opportunities to realise their potential. 

Our work is focused on building better futures for all young Australians by supporting innovations in learning that are more engaging, inclusive and creative.

Our goals are achieved by partnering with visionary programs and organisations, fostering collaborative relationships, and inspiring change by showcasing what works.

We are always on the look out for opportunities for collaboration. Interested in partnering with us or just want further information? Please get in touch.

We are keen to share our knowledge and skills. All our publications, research and resources are available online as are detailed descriptions of the projects we are involved with. You can also subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.

Dusseldorp Forum acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the country in which we work across Australia and pays our respect to Elders past and present.
