Residents sought for New Vantaa residents’ jury

Residents jury

Residents can tell what kind of Vantaa would best support their everyday living.

Vantaa has launched a reform that will create the city of the future. Residents can participate in preparing the reform. Already one thousand Vantaa residents have participated in questionnaires (in 2017 and in 2018) that chart Vantaa’s future and service accessibility. The responses will be accounted for when preparing the New Vantaa reform. During the coming fall, residents’ opinions will be heard in the residents’ jury and organizations’ seminar. In addition, the matter will be handled in the Council of the Disabled and the Elderly’s, Youth Council’s, Svenska kommitté’s and the Advisory Committee for Multicultural Issues’ joint event.

The New Vantaa residents’ jury is now looking for residents of different ages and backgrounds, living in different parts of Vantaa. The residents’ jury will focus on the goals of the reform and consider, among other things, what kind of Vantaa the residents want and what kind of city organization supports the residents’ everyday living. New Vantaa preparers will participate in the jury meetings, and the ideas generated by the jury will be accounted for in the preparation. If you want to apply for the jury, you do not need any preliminary information; interest in your hometown’s affairs is sufficient.

The New Vantaa residents’ jury will assemble four times: twice in fall 2018 and twice in spring 2019. The first meetings will take place on September 13 and October 30, at 17-20, on barrier-free premises in Tikkurila. The members of the jury are offered an evening snack and given Vantaa buckets and movie tickets as thanks for their participation.

Apply for the jury by filling in an online application or by filling in the form at Vantaa Info, or in a citizens' house by August 26. The jury will be marketed in the next few weeks in connection with local services. An as versatile as possible group of 25 residents will be chosen as members of the jury. The chosen will be personally informed of their selection in week 35. Please note that jury works in Finnish.
