Adventure Voice™

Outdoor Research Community


Join New Zealand’s dedicated outdoor research community and help shape the future of our outdoor safety.


What is Adventure Voice, and why join?

Adventure Voice is a dedicated outdoor research community established by the NZ Mountain Safety Council (MSC) and managed by Rangahau Aotearoa Research New Zealand. 

Community members will take part in regular short online surveys, sharing their experiences, insights, and opinions on various outdoor recreation topics. 

Adventure Voice is a powerful way to connect with you, our community. We want to understand your thoughts and actions when planning, preparing, and adventuring in the great outdoors. Your input will shape our work, ensuring it's relevant and responsive to your needs. Because ultimately, you're at the core of everything we do.

Together, we'll improve safety education resources and launch proactive campaigns, ensuring everyone can explore our great outdoors and make it home safe.


What’s involved if I join?

To stay responsive to Aotearoa’s outdoor community, we need to know how people think and act when planning, preparing and adventuring in our great outdoors. Your opinions and perspectives will help us develop the evidence and insights we need to help keep everyone safe in the outdoors. 

As a member of Adventure Voice, you’ll:

  • Have your say on a range of outdoor topics through confidential online surveys.
  • Contribute to accurate data and insights about Aotearoa’s outdoor community.
  • Receive exclusive community updates on our research and insights.
  • Go in the monthly draw to win one of 3x $100 Prezzy® Cards. 

Plus, you’ll have the chance to win additional spot prizes when you complete short online surveys!

Who are we looking for?

Whether you like short walks, hearty tramps, scaling mountains or riding down them, sliding on snow, or scaling crags, your voice matters. We're looking for people from all walks of life, across all types of land-based outdoor recreation, to give us honest insights about what you do when heading off on adventures, big or small.

Your participation in each survey is voluntary and confidential.
