New politics. A new Europe.

We shape solution-orientated, forward-looking policies throughout Europe. For we are convinced that common challenges require cross-border solutions. Anyone who is serious about the future of Europe must think and act in European terms. Our vision: a united Europe with a federal democracy. That is why we must utilise pragmatic solutions from Europe to reform the healthcare and education systems and to make our economies more digital and socially just. That is why we must tackle the climate crisis together.

Here you will find some of our most important political topics. However, for a complete overview of all our demands, please consult our entire electoral programme.

Our political themes

A thriving EU with renewed legitimacy
At Volt, we believe in fortifying the EU’s capacity for collective action, ensuring that Member States collaborate effectively to address shared challenges. Central to this is the bolstering of the EU’s democratic legitimacy.
Thriving Together
Though equality, fairness and democracy are fundamental European values, they are not a reality for everyone across the continent. Our society is divided by factors such as wealth, race, gender and ability: arbitrary differences that lift some up while excluding others.
A new economy that works for everyone
An ambitious climate agenda for Europe
The undeniable effects of climate change have destabilised weather patterns and led to the collapse of ecosystems. To mitigate climate change we know that we must eliminate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and transition to greener economies.

The 5+1 challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
