New politics. A new Europe. / Thriving Together

Protecting digital rights

  • Transform the Declaration on European Digital Rights and Principles for the Digital Decade into a binding legal instrument, so that the Declaration is upheld at every step of policy making.

  • Promote a mandatory opinion by the European Parliament’s LIBE committee for each regulatory proposal on digital matters to guarantee that fundamental rights and freedoms are accounted for in the text.

  • Provide dedicated funding for representation to ensure people residing in the EU can bring violators to justice.

  • Provide dedicated funding for awareness-raising campaigns to enable people to understand how newly enforced EU legislation impacts their fundamental rights and freedoms.

  • Collaborate with existing oversight bodies in Member States and civil society to ensure legal requirements are upheld.

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.
