British politics are broken. It's your turn to fix it!
Volt gave thousands of us hope. Gave us a voice when we felt silenced, forgotten and neglected. Volt gave us the family we’ve never had. No matter our differences, our ego is put aside for the sake of the common good. Passionate fighters for the change that needs to happen before it’s too late. Volt is another chance to fight back!
Founded in 2017 by three Europeans from France, Germany and Italy in the light of the Brexit referendum and the rise of populist movements, Volt was born as a pan-European movement and party aimed to push for a more progressive, pragmatic, evidence-based policy approach to transnational issues such as populism, discrimination, social and economic inequality, corruption and climate change.
Volt is the first successful pan-European political movement, focused on empowering citizens in politics for a Europe based on a strong political union between the European nations, where risks are shared and benefits reach everyone, not just a few. Through a grassroots approach to politics, and community organising initiatives, we are connecting and enabling communities, at local and national level, to become empowered and fight for a better future.
The future is now. Think globally, act locally!
We are European.
We are near you!
Did you know Volt has an MEP?
Damian Boeselager MEP
When looking at Europe, one of the greater overarching problems we came across was the lack of common European solutions, for pan-European issues. From the lack of a common framework on migration and asylum to dealing with climate change across all 28 countries.
Damian, as a Volt Deutschland MEP, is representing Europeans in Brussels. He represents our wish for a stronger and united Europe. But things do not end here. This is just the begining.
