Episode 2: Gelderland (NL)

The province of Gelderland lies in the east of the centre of the Netherlands. In terms of area (5,137 km2) it is the largest of the twelve provinces of the Netherlands. Gelderland’s 54 municipalities are home to more then 2 million inhabitants.

The region has a varied landscape with forests, large rivers and rural areas in the Rhine delta. You will also find modern urban hubs such as Arnhem, Nijmegen and Wageningen with international secondary schools and universities supporting the knowledge-based economy and innovative industries in the fields of Food, Health and Energy. A great quality of life.

This Province occupies a strategic location. Bordering the German Ruhrmetropole and the European hinterland, the province acts as an important portal for the Randstad (the conurbation encompassing the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht), Schiphol Airport, Eindhoven and the Port of Rotterdam.

Just like the other Dutch provinces, the province of Gelderland has its own administration. The provincial government has its seat in Arnhem, which is also the capital of the province. From there the province carries out its core duties in regional economy and sustainable spatial planning, environment, climate, water management, mobility, cultural infrastructure and quality of public administration. Doing so it occupies an intermediate position between national government and local municipalities.

Episode 1: Wallonie (BE)

An open-minded area, a land of exchange: As a region, Wallonia is naturally open to the world and conversant in different languages and cultures. A vocation for exporting. An extraordinary sense of welcome. As an area of industrial tradition, Wallonia has forged its identity through immigration. It has a young and internationally mobile population. Its university colleges and universities, which appear in global rankings, feature a very high proportion of foreign students. (source: wallonia.be)

Wallonia is landlocked, with an area of 16,844 km², or 55% of the total area of Belgium. The Sambre and Meuse valley, from Liège (70 m) to Charleroi (120 m) is an entrenched river in a fault line which separates Middle Belgium (elevation 100–200 m) and High Belgium (200–700 m). This fault line corresponds to a part of the southern coast of the late London-Brabant Massif. The valley, along with Haine and Vesdre valleys form the sillon industriel, the historical centre of the Belgian coalmining and steelmaking industry, and is also called the Walloon industrial backbone.
To the north of the Sambre and Meuse valley lies the Central Belgian plateau, which is characterized by intensive agriculture. The Walloon part of this plateau is traditionally divided into several regions: Walloon Brabant around Nivelles, Western Hainaut (French: Wallonie picarde, around Tournai), and Hesbaye around Waremme. South of the sillon industriel, the land is more rugged and is characterized by more extensive farming. (source: wikipedia)
