The Minderoo Foundation has launched its 2019 Annual Report, highlighting a year of remarkable achievements and exciting new projects.  

Andrew, Nicola and Grace Forrest joined CEO Andrew Hagger for Minderoo Foundation’s inaugural Annual Report Roadshow which saw a travelling party of leaders visit five states – and the ACT – in just five days.

Launch events were held to packed function rooms in Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Hobart.  A separate Perth event will be held this week.

The leaders of Minderoo’s eight core initiatives presented on the exciting breakthroughs which have led to 2019 becoming a watershed year for the Foundation.

Highlights included the $5 million collaboration with the Zero Childhood Cancer program, the release of the Bright Tomorrows Parenting App, the #NoPlasticWaste initiative and the launch of Walk Free’s Measurement, Action, Freedom Report. 

CEO Andrew Hagger said the roadshow was a chance for government, business and philanthropic leaders outside of Western Australia to get an understanding of the phenomenal work Minderoo was doing to arrest unfairness and create opportunities to better the world.
