About Volt Frankfurt

Volt Frankfurt: The Political Party

Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe – the first pan-European party. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.

Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challenges we face are shared with over 100 million people in metropolises all over Europe. Volt stands for the urban life of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions. 

We want to implement solutions that were already proven successful in other European cities. Be it lowering rents like in Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital government services like in Estonia: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
