Jersey’s third annual Democracy Week will take place next week from Monday 26 to Friday 30 September. This is an opportunity to connect with newly elected States Members, both in-person and online, and for Islanders of all ages to engage with Jersey’s unique political system in a variety of fun, creative ways. As part of this, Islanders are welcome to:
Watch the new Jersey Youth Parliament discuss their campaign topics for the upcoming year
In addition, States Members will be delivering a range of activities in Island schools during the week, including Les Quennevais, Springfield, Samares, Beaulieu, Hautlieu, Plat Douet, St George’s and Le Rocquier.
Education Manager at the States Greffe, Molly Jehan, said: “We’re really excited to announce this year’s programme of activities. Following June’s election, our priority is to help Islanders of all ages to connect with their elected representatives and understand how to continue to use their voice to influence the future of Jersey. All activities are free of charge, with some great competition prizes on offer.”
