We asked

Year of Our Island worked to inspire and encourage people to Explore more, Do more and Share more – we asked the public to give us some feedback to help us evaluate the initiative and events, and to understand the value gained by our community for running the ‘special year’ along with any lessons to be learnt if a similar programme was to be run again in the future.

The responses to the consultation helped to form part of our review, which was presented to the Council of Ministers in October 2019. This is available to read below.

Throughout 2018, the Year of Our Island programme worked to inspire people of all ages to explore more and do more on the Isle of Man, and to encourage people to share more of what they love about our Island. Year of Our Island has hosted, supported and enhanced events and projects in order to expand the range of activities available to people across our Island.
