With this motion (NR.193), we instruct the magistrate to submit the draft of a municipal freedom of information statute to the City Council. As much data collected by the city as possible should be publicly available. It belongs to the general public, not to an authority. Free information creates trust and enables informed citizens. These are essential for a healthy democracy. Of course, personal data must still be protected.
Making Public Data Public
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.
