Logo Initiative Transparente ZivilgesellschaftTransparency is very important to us, therefor we decided to join the Transparent Civil Society Initiative. On the initiative of Transparency International Deutschland e.V., organizations from civil society and science got together in 2010 and jointly defined ten criteria that every civil society organization should make available to the public. More than 1800 organizations have already joined the initiative, we are happy to be part of it.


We undertake to make the following ten pieces of information available to the public and to keep them up to date:
