Political engagement

We need to see a much higher level of political engagement with the population.

The recent presidential election in the US yielded record voter turnout because voters felt that it really mattered that they have their say.

On Jersey there is a disconnect between politics and the people and this needs to be resolved, particularly with young voters who are inheriting the environmental and climate issues that this forum is trying to resolve.

 

Why the contribution is important

The ideas, policies and technologies are all there to resolve this crisis. What is needed is the political will (and skill) to undertake the much needed transitional change.

Political will comes from strong mandates and strong mandates come from civic and voter engagement.
