One step closer to the targeted objective

Besides raising awareness in the black Forest region, the local group of Freudenberg wants to lobby for the Global Marshall Plan at state level. The group's goal is to reach global as well as local economy, civil society and politics for a new age of cooperation. Because of this reason, a petition has been sent to the Minister President of the German state Baden Wurttemberg, in order to plead for official support of the Global Marshall Pllan Initiative – like all states of Austria and other states in Germany.
The petition can be downloaded here. In the following, the group got invited to take part in the conference for development policy, where citizens had the chance to make their voices heard.

A small delegation, composed of members from the local groups of Schramberg, Tübingen, Bodensee and Freudenberg travelled to Stuttgart, where they had the chance to present their request in person. Their demands have been written down and are considered hopefully. The local group of Freudenberg will stay on it and follow up on the demands in the near future.

If you want to know more about the issue you can contact Ralf Kern at freudenberg@globalmarshallplan.org.
