Successful petition in 6 steps

Make a clear argument why something needs to be changed and to which decision-making person (s) you address your petition. Use your personal story to explain why the concern is important to you and others. Pictures and videos also help to make your concerns clear.

The hot phase begins: spread your initiative via social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter as well as via WhatsApp and email. Topically matching Facebook groups or forums are also particularly helpful. Signatures can also be collected offline and then uploaded to the online petition.

The more signatures, the greater the political weight of your petition - so stay tuned! Plan online campaigns with your supporters, such as video and picture campaigns, a Twitter campaign with an individual hashtag or offline campaigns such as a demonstration. Contact decision-makers, your supporters and also try it with celebrities - it's worth it!

Contact the decision-making person and ask for a personal meeting for the handover. If no appointment can be made, contact the person making the decision together with your supporters via Twitter, email, or letter. Once you have reached the quorum, we will request statements from the relevant parliament for you and publish them on your petition page.

The collection goal has been achieved - now you should submit your petition! Do you even have an appointment for a personal handover? Inform your supporters and send invitations to the press. Hand in your petition with a high-profile poster and your signatures - take photos and videos and publish them on social media. This shows your commitment and your concern remains in public.
