Made in Europe.
Our Department Head for Digitisation and Education Holger Klötzner is running in the election for Lord Mayor!
Holger Klötzner wants to be Lord Mayor of Darmstadt because he wants to create opportunities - opportunities through education, opportunities through digitisation, and opportunities through a new and collaborative way of doing politics. To make this possible, he is already constantly finding new solutions to current challenges in his role as department head. Whether it's childcare bottlenecks at elementary schools or new digital access for citizens, he can help people. That motivates him to make even more possible in Darmstadt.
As Lord Mayor, he wants to ensure that Darmstadt remains a modern and innovative city and living here becomes even more enjoyable. For him, this includes top-equipped schools, a digital and efficient administration, sustainable building construction and an environment in which both large and small companies can grow. He would like to create a separate department for art & culture, citizen participation, science and volunteerism and fill it with an expert woman. The number of departments would remain the same, as his current department would become vacant.
In the election campaign Holger Klötzner would like to prove that he can bring people with different opinions together again. For him, contact at eye level and a solution-oriented view must not be lacking.
And welcome to Volt Darmstadt.
Our concept is European, our agenda meets the spirit of the times and our members are highly motivated. Be part of it, join us and let's shape our European future together!
One thing is clear: Europe is not the problem, Europe is the solution. So many successful models shape the image of Europe, we just have to look and bring the best solutions home.
It is time for innovation. Both in our political action and in our internal organisation, we are leaving outdated thinking behind. We make policy based on progress and research!
The current problems must be tackled as quickly as possible. For this, we draw inspiration from existing European models. We make policies that are feasible in the long term and implementable in the short term!
The major problems of our time do not stop at national borders. Solutions can only be achieved through close cooperation. We make policies that overcome borders!
