With this motion (NR.274), we commission the magistrate to examine the streams in Frankfurt’s urban area to determine which reconstruction measures are necessary to reduce the risk of damage from flooding or to prevent it altogether. In the context of climate change, the weather is becoming more extreme and unpredictable. It is therefore important to take preventive measures. Where possible, flood protection measures should of course also be accompanied by an improvement in the ecological situation.

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.
