Who are we?
Mobility and Infrastructure
Our Topics and Goals
All over Europe, students are struggling with the same problems.
Together with other Volt university groups we advocate for stronger networking and the expansion of Erasmus+.
We are committed to ensuring that university roofs are equipped with solar panels.
In addition to more vegan options, the cafeteria should provide the students with microwaves to enable us to heat up food brought from home, similar to ETH Zurich.
In exchange with other universities, we want to find the best solutions for improving e-learning at KIT.
Additionally, we demand free access to scientific results for all students.
With a European Youth Card we want to campaign low-cost local and long-distance transportation for students.
The bicycle racks on campus must be renewed and expanded.
Student financing and housing
Studying should not be a privilege based on origin. Our goal is an appropriate standard of living for all students.
With a view to the time after Covid, a further expansion of dormitory capacities is necessary.
Who is Volt Europe?
Volt is a movement with the goal of bringing Europe closer together.
We are pragmatic.
We do not follow any specific ideology but try to make efficient decisions based on approaches which were already successful elsewhere.
We are paneuropean.
Intercultural and scientific exchange plays an important role in university life. Through our unique network with other Volt university groups it is possible to overcome national boundaries and thereby apply the best-practice-principle most efficiently.
We are progressive.
We see change as a chance which has to be met with open and solution-oriented approaches. Therefore we are open to the changes of our social and universitary environments. Nevertheless racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination are still present problems at universities. We stand for personal freedom and full acceptance of the personal definition of every human being and for a diverse and inclusive university.
