No sustainable politics without diversity. In collaboration with JoinPolitics we are launching Team Europa in 2023 to bring into our parliaments in Germany and Europe all the people who are still underrepresented:
Women, non-white people, people with international histories and different religions, queer people and non-academics - simply more people with diverse backgrounds.
Team Europa prepares you for candidacy and successful work in the European Parliament. You will learn from experienced hands everything you need to bring your topic into politics.

We strongly condemn Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine, which is contrary to international law. In view of the current situation, it is clearer than ever that national policies have reached their limits. Therefore, we reiterate our call for long-term solutions in European cooperation. This includes a common foreign policy, the development of a European army and a European strategy to free ourselves from energy imports from non-EU countries. In the short term, we also advocate a comprehensive energy embargo, because especially in times of crisis we have to put values before economic interests.
