Democracy Bus 2021

The Democracy Bus 2021 aimed to inspire over 100 Victoria College students to use their voice to help shape the future of Jersey.

What happened:

Students took part in a quiz about the 2020 Government Plan; looking into where and how public money was spent.

We then asked students: “If you had £1 million of taxpayers money to improve the Island, what would you spend it on?” In groups they pitched their ideas to the wider group. A democratic vote then took place to decide on the winning idea, which would be the driving force for the designs of the 2021 Democracy Bus.

Key themes:

  • Create a more diverse range of public transport
  • Build more Community and Entertainment facilities
  • Increase in retail and hospitality, especially homeware
  • Develop more Environmentally friendly initiatives
  • Sport facility developments
