Participate in deciding the future of the Netherlands, even outside the voting booth?

A citizens' council makes this possible

On November 22, the Netherlands went to the polls again, and together we decided on the political course of the coming years. Voting is something to cherish, even though its influence for citizens sometimes feels quite limited. And politics does not always have answers for major challenges such as climate change, the housing crisis and the growing gap between rich and poor. A citizens' council gives citizens a place at the policy table, and gives people a chance to engage with each other in a constructive way. In this way we build policy together that is better suited to people's living environment.
