short notice is  a part of Aktion Mensch's Gesellschafter initiative. »In
what kind of society do we want to live?« With this question
dieGesellschafter.de approached the population almost two years ago. Since
then the dieGesellschafter.de internet platform has been visited 2.2 million
times and 175,000 contributions have been posted. Thus dieGesellschafter.de
has become an important for political debate in Germany. Together with 75
partner organisations, Aktion Mensch is also seeking practical answers.
Approximately 5,000 grant applications for new initiatives have been
submitted. And the platform offers a free database for volunteer work which
networks interested volunteer works with charitable organisations. For more
