Tips & Guidance

The title is the first thing others will see of you petition. It should state clearly, what your concern is and invite to read on. Without a striking title your concern may go unnoticed.

Set up your concerns to the recipient who can really make a decision about it. In a petition to your political concern is aimed (for free) to a (partially) state receiver. Campaigns with non-state receivers we charge a one-time service charge.

Clarify the problem. Why does it have to be done NOW? Is a decision coming up? Are facts being created? Make a concrete claim! How do supporters contribute to the solution?
