Frankfurt has too little housing for students and trainees. With this motion (NR.389) we therefore commit to the goal of providing at least 10% of students and trainees with eligible student housing. To this end, a round table with universities & colleges, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, student and trainee representatives as well as other stakeholders is to be established. This round table will meet semi-annually to discuss how new building projects and models for living together can be financed and realised. In addition, we agree on a 5% quota of apartments in new construction projects of the AGB being explicitly available for students, trainees or other people with urgent need for housing. For these apartments, the rent may only exceed the BAfög flat-rate housing allowance in absolutely exceptional cases.
Affordable Housing for Students and Trainees
Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
