What we do

The Committee for Sydney is the city’s urban policy think tank. We are advocates for the whole of Sydney, and its broader national impact, researching and developing solutions to the most important problems we face. Our goal is to help Greater Sydney be the best it can be, for all. As of January 2024, we are now recognised as an Approved Research Institute!
