The principle

Volt is a citizens' movement. We believe that a society can only exist and develop by giving everyone a voice and by implementing an agenda that leaves no one behind. We believe in governing with citizens rather than governing citizens. We believe that good politics is about spending more time listening than talking. It means more effort because decisions will have to be taken on the basis of the general interest rather than the interest of the most vocal or influential. We are volunteers who share the idea of empowering citizens and reinventing politics into what it should be: made by citizens for citizens.

Our election programmes

Our mapping of policies

The Volt Mapping of Policies is a living document that defines our values and goals across Europe. Everyone is invited to contribute to these policy proposals!

With this programme we want to tackle the 5+1 challenges in every European country. The "5" challenges - a smart state, social equality, economic renaissance, citizen empowerment and global balance - these we want to master at local, regional and national levels throughout Europe. The "+1" - EU reform - is the same across all countries, because it explains how we want to reform and strengthen the EU.

More information on the current policies and developments can be found on the EU policy portfolio.
