Guernsey Digital Greenhouse moves to next stage - from concept to reality

Share this page

Wednesday 29 April 2015

The Commerce and Employment Department is delighted to announce that funding for the Guernsey Digital Greenhouse project has now been agreed by the Treasury and Resources Department. This means that the Department is now able to progress this important project with the aim to open for business later this summer.

Commerce and Employment Minister, Deputy Kevin Stewart said:

"This is extremely good news for Guernsey and I am very pleased to see that the exciting plans now become reality. This investment really shows the faith and confidence that the Guernsey Government has in the development of the technological and creative sectors in Guernsey, and the necessity to develop digital skills and capabilities across a range of users in the Island."

Whilst waiting for the funding to be agreed, much work has been done with industry and community contacts to develop the Guernsey Digital Greenhouse concept so that the Department was ready to progress the project quickly when funding was released. This work will continue apace so that the Guernsey Digital Greenhouse can be opened at the earliest opportunity.

Mike Culverwell, Implementation and Business Development Director for the Guernsey Digital Greenhouse commented:

"The Guernsey Digital Greenhouse will act as a centre of focus for the digital and creative community in Guernsey, and will enable skills, knowledge and experiences to be shared and developed. It will be essential for development of the digital and creative economy in Guernsey, but also will provide opportunities for all islanders to improve their knowledge and use of digital technology. These are very exciting times for Guernsey."

A further announcement on the location of the Digital Greenhouse and plans for a phased roll out will be made shortly.
