Democracy in action!

The province of Overijssel is active in many areas of your environment. Take for instance the impressive network of buses that can take you anywhere you want to go in the region. But public transport is just a small part of what we do.

The provincial government makes decisions on a daily basis that shape your environment. These decisions are sometimes very hard to make: should we make room for nature or allow development of a business park that will create jobs?

That's why I think it's important for you to know what we do, and to know how to get in touch when necessary. Because we can only make the right choices if we know what you think.

This brochure and film (both on the right side of this page) show you how the provincial government of Overijssel works and how we manage your environment. If you want to know more please visit our website www.jijenoverijssel.nl (Dutch). or feel free to attend a meeting of the Provincial Council.

Ank Bijleveld-Schouten,
King's Commissioner in the province of Overijssel
