What does Volt stand for? / Volt policy groundwork

Our electoral program 2024

Our electoral programs are developed based on priorities determined by our members through a preferendum.

Our top ten priorities for the 2024 federal and regional elections were chosen during a democratic grassroots exercise shaped during our Winter Preferendum in 2023.

Discover below our electoral programs for the various elections in 2024.

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.

  • 01

    Smart State

    Education and digitalisation are key elements of the 21st century.

  • 02

    Economic Renaissance

    An innovative economy must be the engine of society's progress.

  • 03

    Social Equality

    No-one should be left behind - no matter their gender, income, religion. or origin.

  • 04

    Global Balance

    Europe needs to assume responsibility for its role in global challenges.

  • 05

    Citizen Empowerment

    People must be empowered to influence politics beyond elections alone.

  • +1

    EU Reform

    We love the EU - this doesn't mean there is no room for improvement.
