Mosses and Marshes Values. Voices. Actions.
This form provides a way for anyone to contribute to the conversation around what values we place on special environments like the Mosses and Marshes, and how those values might shape our thinking and understanding of these places. We're also keen to know what voices are missing from the conversation about the future of these environments, and what actions you think might make a difference to their future and the communities connected to them.

This survey is the follow-up to the online Mosses and Marshes International Panel Discussion held on 11 November 2021. This event brought together a panel of natural resource managers, scientists, academics, and cultural consultants from Australia and the UK to consider current values, ways of understanding and thinking about our natural world, and how and what we may need to make important decisions about their future. The panel responded to a series of pre-recorded provocations from natural resource managers, land managers, artists, and wetland community members in front of a live audience.

This is a community engagement extension activity of the international Mosses and Marshes project, co-led by artists Kim V. Goldsmith (Australia) and Andrew Howe (UK). Find more information about Mosses and Marshes at &

There are no right or wrong answers and even though this response requires the provision of an email address*, the responses will be considered anonymously. Should you wish to be part of any follow-up by the artists, you may choose to provide your name and email address. Only responses with contact details will receive further correspondence.

What changes or actions do you think might make a difference to the future of these landscapes and the communities connected to them.
