Dr Philip Freier, the Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne, has called for a renewed commitment to a vision of the common good in Australia, one in which we have a sense of mutual obligation to one another and responsibility for one another, and also share the nation’s wealth equitably for the well-being of all.

“Without a vision of the common good, the gap between rich and poor will continue to grow, and the commitment to investing in a better future for all Australians will be weakened,” he said.

Dr Freier discussed this vision on 26 September as part of his Breakfast Conversation series in BMW Edge, Federation Square. The Archbishop’s guests were Fr Frank Brennan AO, Jesuit priest, human rights lawyer and Professor of Law at the Australian Catholic University; and Associate Professor Sharif As-Saber, Deputy Head, Research & Innovation, School of Management, RMIT University.
