We, the KinderRÄchTsZÄnker, stand for the abolition of the age limit for voting. We believe there will be a lot of indirect consequences for the whole of society, when children are no longer denied the right to vote - towards more peacefulness and contentedness of all humans, not just children.

Here you can read our most important arguments and our answers to lots of frequently asked questions.

Additionally we publish the most important official documents and our information for the press here in the internet.
