We’re still European!

Volt in the UK
“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.”
Global politics are broken. It’s your turn to fix it!
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.
Due to current events relating the COVID-19 oubreak normal events have been suspended. We are instead launching a program of online events to replace in person events while social distancing measures are in place.
Volt UK has teams across the country with four coordination hubs in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester. Politics is for everyone, it starts at the local level and then goes up. To change politics we must empower communities, join us and join your local Volt team.
