Island Identity Consultation

What makes Jersey special and why does that matter?

These two simple-sounding questions underpin the Island Identity project. If we can provide satisfactory answers to them, we can begin to see how our Island’s distinctive qualities can be recognised afresh, protected and celebrated. 

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to the Island Identity consultation and to provide your answers to these critical questions.

The questions we ask below are deliberately open ended, and provide room for long or short answers. Please give your honest views and let us know what it means to be a part of this community, what makes us unique, and what we should value and defend.

1. What makes Jersey special and why does it matter to you?


2. What does it mean to be 'Jersey', now and in the future?


3. What can we all do to solidify a cohesive and positive Island identity?


4. Are there barriers to a positive and inclusive Island identity? (What requires a greater focus and what is being missed?)
