About the Island Identity Policy Board
The Island Identity Policy Board was set up to provide common focal points for our growing and increasingly diverse population, and to help the Island project its unique culture and varied talents as part of a positive and coherent international personality.
Building on Jersey’s heritage and distinctive identity the policy board will develop an action plan that will build a stronger, more inclusive sense of Island identity. It will seek to provide:
- a sustainable and vibrant economy
- protection for our environment
- a sense of place, culture and distinctive local identity
- social inclusion, and to further the Island’s interests, profile and reputation internationally not just as a world-class financial centre but as a generous, responsible outward looking island
A strong and inclusive sense of Island identity underpins the success of many of the goals prioritised by the Council of Ministers in the Common Strategic Policy. To achieve this, we need an Island at peace with itself, proud of its varied cultural and economic heritage, and confident of its place in the world.
