In the Media

The project has already featured in radio broadcasts on BBC Radio Shropshire and in New South Wales, Australia, and in local press. The project is attracting attention from environmental practitioners and related organisations.

Goldsmith and Andrew Howe share their story about the collaborative Mosses and Marshes project, which investigates connections between fragile wetlands and their communities in England and Australia, seeking new interpretations, multiple perspectives and less-heard voices.
