We want to campaign for low-cost local and long-distance transport for students throughout Europe with a European Youth Card.

Who is Volt Europa?
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.
