Thinking European, acting local

We are Volt, a grassroots Pan-European political movement. We are active on the European, national and local level and run for the local council in ten Dutch municipalities, including Rotterdam! Rotterdam is a diverse city, no neighbourhood is the same. With a sea port of global importance, innovative entrepreneurs, and excellent international education the Rotterdam region breaths European cooperation.

That is where the future lies, but we must keep equal opportunities for everyone in mind. We must empower the citizens for their voices to be heard. In order to achieve this we want to be the new movement that joins the Rotterdam local council. We are in full campaign mode and we invite you to meet our candidates and read our election manifesto.

Election day for local council is March 16, 2022. We want to proclaim our positive approach to politics in the Rotterdam local council; therefore we are electable in Rotterdam. We think European and act local. Creating connections and looking forward by turning our values into plans for Europe is how we create a society with equal opportunities and shared luck. Open dialogue and trust are at the heart of our approach. Trust between citizens and trust in the political system are crucial in a democracy and can only be reached by working in Brussels, The Hague, and in Rotterdam. Vote Volt!
