Imagine Jersey 2035

Past projects

By Amy Deerans

Amy worked as an intern at Involve in early 2011 and has now left. Among other things, she assisted in the maintenance of the Involve website and was responsible for writing up case studies of Involve projects.

Imagine Jersey 2035 was a project that consulted the citizens of Jersey on how the island government should tackle the challenges of the ageing population. The aim was to build the capacity of the States of Jersey to engage the public and develop policies reflecting citizens’ informed views. This included raising awareness and understanding among the general public of the challenges and tradeoffs facing the States of Jersey and for the Government in turn to understand the public’s views and preferences on these issues

Involve designed a process which was tailored to the specific situation in Jersey and which built on the skills of the government. The consultation combined two deliberative conferences (one for citizens of mixed ages and one for young people), an online survey, and a written consultation. The results of these were analysed and produced in a final report.
