Deine Wahl

Impact

Provided a large number of young voters with information about their politicians to promote willingness to make their voice heard

Problem to solve

Low turnout among young people at federal elections, especially valid for the group below age 21 with a turnout of < 65% compared to the overall average of 72%1

Our solution

Informing young voters by setting up a panel discussion with the youngest candidates for the German parliament of each major political party. Objective of the event was to deliver the message that their opinion matters to secure democracy. People interested in our event had the chance to ask questions via social media in advance.

What’s next

After receiving positive feedback from both politicians and guests participating in the event, we are looking forward to hosting DEINE WAHL! 2018 for the Bavarian state election.
