Voices of Mornington Peninsula’s primary mission is to listen to the Mornington Peninsula community. We seek to establish the collective values and identify issues of importance to Mornington Peninsula residents, so that these views can be represented effectively at federal, state and council levels of government.
To support this mission, we are asking our community to respond to eight survey questions. All responses will be recorded anonymously, and later compiled into a report that will soon be made publicly available.
The survey can be completed via two modes: in person at a Kitchen Table Conversation with a small group of other locals, or by completing the survey online. Once you have participated in a KTC, you may wish to host a session.
Join a Kitchen Table Conversation (KTC)
This is the name given to the way we seek to discuss ideas with people of the Mornington Peninsula. This is a great way to meet people and find out what matters to them. In a nutshell, it’s just a chat with a small group based on the eight easy survey questions. KTCs are a hosted Q&A where the answers are noted down anonymously and collated by Voices of Mornington Peninsula.
KTCs are designed as an information gathering process not a political discussion or debate. The data gathered is vital to identify the key priorities of residents. There is no need for participants to share who they vote for, and a consensus does not need to be reached - it is an open discussion.
Take the online survey
Given the evolving situation with Covid-19 restrictions, you may prefer to complete the eight-question survey online. These questions are the same as those asked during a KTC, and will give you an opportunity to state what is important to you, and how your local representative can work effectively with our community to achieve political change
