Politikos - Wir Müssen Reden!

Politikos is a non-partisan initiative of young people who take an active e interest in politics and society. We aim at restoring direct, unbiased channels of communication between policy makers and civil society.
We aim at reconnecting the Austrian public with its political representatives by offering citizens a platform to express their opinions, make proposals and endorse ideas.
We also aim at offering politicians a direct and neutral channel to consult their voters on policy proposals, canvass opinions and and engage in discusssion.
We want to establish a platform which offers non-partisan, politically independent participation for everyone.
