Three most important issues concerning Europe in my view:

  1. Bring the EU closer to its citizens and empower them to get active.
  2. Reform the EU to do so.
  3. Create a unified federal, democratic, digitalized Europe that works for its citizens.

What makes me enthusiastic about Volt:

The strong vision, the open-minded, funny, energetic people who are working on getting closer to a unified Europe and the amount of things everyone is learning by being an active part.

My main reasons for joining the „Community Organization Program“:

I think it is not enough to just lead. It is fundamental to understand what leading means and how every person can be empowered to create change. To lead an organization with specific methods like Community Organizing is more sustainable because the growth will not depend on a handful of leading persons. Community Organizing is one of the main elements of Volt´s character so in order to represent and lead the German chapter of Volt, I want to be able to spread this character and optimize my leading skills.

With my newly acquired knowledge my goal is to:

Professionalize Volt Deutschland and to pass the five percent threshold for the German federal elections in 2021.
