Our Campaigns & Activities
With our campaigns and other actions we draw attention to transparency deficiencies that concern all of us!
Whether it's hygiene reports from restaurants, former high-school exams or the progress of the government's coalition agreement: countless documents and thus, hidden knowledge is kept away from the public eye, despite great general interest. In order to free them, we are launching campaigns and actions together with our partners from the civil society.

Coalition Agreement Tracker
With our coalition tracker, you can follow the government work of the traffic light coalition live: Which projects are being implemented? Which plans are being halted? What's happening in the specific areas?
With our platform "Pot Secret" consumers can easily obtain the results of food safety inspections in restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets and other food-processing businesses. Together with our partners at foodwatch, we created a platform that enables all people to quickly and easily access the reports.
Knowledge and reliable information are indispensable to advocate for consistent climate protection and climate justice. The climate helpdesk of FragDenStaat supports activists and organisations of the climate and environmental movement to free information from authorities free of charge.
Black Box EU
Transparent trilogues instead of secret laws! EU policy is not decided in the Parliament or in the Commission, but is in informal, non-transparent meetings - the so-called trilogues.Citizens and civil society only find out about a proposed law when the EU has already reached an agreement. This makes democratic accountability and critical reporting virtually impossible. The secrecy around lawmaking has to end now!

Citizens can now request results of food safety inspections of all meat and sausage producers on "Topf Secret - Mission Fleisch". On the basis of each meat and sausage packaging the associated company can be found. The food authorities are obliged to provide the information.
Especially in public buildings, a lot of energy is wasted due to poor insulation. Whether it's a town hall, school, hospital or tax office - request an energy performance certificate for public buildings in your municipality. The waste of energy and taxpayers' money must not be a state secret!
Germany is giving billions in aid to companies in the wake of the Corona crisis. So far, there are hardly any conditions for the assistance. Corporations that avoid taxes through their international corporate structures or act against the Paris climate goals through climate-damaging activities can now receive aid from the state. We ensure transparency.
Limited Art Editions
Every year on the Access to Information Day on September 28, we present our new limited art editions. By making an annual donation of 250 euros, you will receive them as a thank you gift. You can find details here.
Many of our campaigns have initiated real improvements. "Pot Secret", for example, led to numerous legislative initiatives; since "Gläserne Gesetze" (Transparent Laws), the federal government has published draft laws and lobby statements. Furthermore, with "FragDenBundestag", the German Bundestag made thousands of expert opinions of the Research and Documentation Service accessible.
Cooperation and Contact
Working together generates the most attention. That's why we collaborate with partners on our campaigns. If you are interested in campaigning with FragDenStaat, then get in touch with us!
