The Munich Volt Team
The election of the European Parliament, the election programme for the local elections, monthly meetings (currently online) and events on the issues of our time, such as the fundraising for the Moria refugee camp in September - without an energetic community that plans, organises, coordinates and motivates, the vision of a strong, just and future-oriented Europe remains a dream.
We work in a creative, equal and democratic way. To this end, we have teams with different responsibilities, each headed by one or two members. Each of our more than 150 members and volunteers in Munich can contribute to these teams.
Whether creative ideas for the election campaign, new event concepts or structural issues: the democratically elected and parity-filled board of directors has the final say and thus decides whether the projects are in line with Volt, financially feasible and within the legal framework. A responsible task.
Only in a strong political community like Europe can we solve the global problems of our time.
I am a convinced and passionate European, adventurous on my travels, enthusiastic about many things, a passable gardener (with sometimes green thumbs), hobby writer and an euphoric science fiction nerd.
As a Giesinger I love Munich and Europe - this is my home!
The community and the commitment of its members are of particular importance to Volt. We need people who come from all parts of society and who want to shape the future. That is why we pay close attention to promoting diversity and want to know each and every Volter. The Community Team welcomes you, takes care of your first steps at Volt and passes you on within the Volt community.

Think politics together from Europe, instead of from the individual states.
I am a Munich European with Dutch roots, hobby mechanic and water person.
The Communications Team is responsible for communication with Volters and interested parties. This includes press relations and the maintenance of social media accounts as well as marketing campaigns. Internal communication is coordinated by the Communications Team as well.

European challenges need European solutions made in Munich.
I am a convinced European with Swabian roots and a green thumb. I enjoy travelling Europe and the world to meet new people and cultures.
Data analysis belongs to a modern party like events or contacting citizens. The Data Analytics team evaluates official and self-recorded data on current issues and sentiments, such that Volt can develop further.

Enabling more citizen participation in urban policy through digital technology.
Volt events (these days unfortunately often with a lot of distance or digitally) are an important interface between Volt and other pro-European organisations, experts and of course the residents of Munich. They provide an opportunity for exchange among each other and for information on political content.

Europe is what we make of it!
I am a Bavarian European, mountain lover and passionate surfer. I like to travel the world without forgetting my roots and I would like to have a European passport some day.
As a modern party in Europe, Volt wants to keep open not only the borders between European countries, but also the borders between people, which create prejudice and inequality. The equal rights commissioners therefore look precisely where there are still borders and divides, so that Volt can overcome them. With a policy that sees every person.

A Sofia man in Munich? A Bulgarian in Bavaria? Actually, whether in my adopted home of Munich or in my birthplace Sofia, I am exactly what I want to be - a European in Europe.
Through my profession alone - I am a translator - I am enthusiastic about cultural contact between people and about building cross-national communities and relationships. I also experience the fascination of Europe in my private life and would like to play an active role in politics. Before Volt, I was never a member of a party, but I was involved in the fight against corruption, nationalism and populism from the East in my old home country.
Paneuropäisch, progressiv, pragmatisch, faktenbasiert…
Many associations, companies and also private individuals share our values. These institutions also work for a future Europe, as we at Volt imagine it to be. So why not stand for it together? Together with our partners we will reach the goal and stay in touch even after the joint projects.

Together we can enhance Munich - with the best ideas from Europe. For everyone who lives in Munich!
… born on coal, at home in Munich
… part of the older generation at Volt, but still a rejuvenating cure for the city council,
… open to new ideas, able to think outside the box and always ready to tackle controversial issues.
Our policy has been a response to world events since Volt was founded. The Policy Team develops our issues from recognising and exposing today's grievances and finding creative, refreshing and unconventional ways out of the problems. In Munich we have the chance to participate directly in the shaping of Munich through a seat on the city council. A great privilege for the whole Volt community. Thank you for your votes and your trust!

Enabling more (sub)culture in Munich.
Since the city of Munich depends on cooperation with the communities in the surrounding area on many issues, it is important for us to have contacts there as well. The Expansion Team helps interested people from municipalities around Munich to set up new Volt teams and supports the existing teams to grow further.

The challenges of our time do not stop at national borders. They must be tackled on a pan-European basis.
I'm a dog daddy (out in all weathers), hobby brewer (and it tastes good), TSV 1860 fan (unlimited suffering) and Leberkässemmel-without-sweet-mustard eater (the butcher thought of something).
Municipal Councillor in the City of Munich
Munich should become a role model for other European metropolitan areas.
I am European by conviction! I have consciously chosen the European idea and way of life. Neither in my school days nor in my job as a financial advisor have I ever had the opportunity to live in another European country. Nevertheless, I felt like a European and decided to get to know my home continent. So in my free time I started to travel and talk to local people about politics and Europe. During these trips I have experienced things in many cities that are going extraordinarily well. We should adopt these positive examples in Munich and at the same time export the ideas in which our city is a role model.
