Pragmatic. Progressive. Pan-European.
Who we are?
Volt Europa is an international NGO that participates in European, national, regional and local elections with its affiliated political parties in many countries across Europe, but at the same time strives to make Europe a better place in many other ways.
The party has more than 20 000 members and 100+ elected officials in various EU countries. The German party has delegated one member to the European Parliament, while Volt has two MPs each in The Netherlands and Bulgaria. In addition to this, our activists work as elected officials in many municipal councils from Aachen through Rome to Zwolle.
Volt is also present in Hungary: currently, there are a handful of activists working on building up the Hungarian political party. Join us and take part in the life of a party that dynamically grows throughout Europe and a movement that has set itself the goal of having at least 25 members elected in the 2024 European Parliament elections. (Hungary is entitled to 21 seats.)
What do we want?
We would like to build a unified and federal Europe based on the below priorities:
Education and digitalisation are key elements of the 21st century.
An innovative economy must be the engine of society's progress.
No one should be left behind - no matter their gender, income, religion or origin.
Europe needs to assume responsibility for its role in global challenges.
People must be empowered to influence politics beyond elections alone.
We love the EU - this doesn't mean there is no room for improvement
