Project by capito Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

People with disabilities as editors, experts and political representatives

For many people with disabilities, it can be difficult to find information about politics and political programs in easy-to-understand language. The project provides them with this access.

The goal: The project aims to provide people with barrier-free access to political information and processes as well as to strengthen the sharing structure and inclusion competence of institutions and parties.

The target groups of the individual products are people with and without disabilities who want barrier-free information at their desired access points. The commissioning institutions themselves are also a target group.


The brochure "So wählen wir" ("This is how we vote"), a podcast and a newsletter were created.


The project started in 2017 and focused on 2021 and 2022.

What exactly does the project look like?

Various information and training materials were developed for the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern State Center for Political Education on the occasion of the 2021 state elections in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern: Print brochure and accessible PDFSo wählen wir” including an educational game and accessible explanatory videos. Based on these materials, capito Mecklenburg-Vorpommern trained people with and without disabilities in seminars and workshops.

Together with the European Integration Center Rostock, the podcastPolitik einfach hören” was also published. This was created by an inclusive editorial team.

A newsletter in easy-to-understand language was produced for the State Chancellery of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. An inclusive editorial team selects and researches the topics. Election programs for state and federal parties were translated into understandable language.
