Three most important issues concerning Europe in my view:
- Unity within the EU, by which we can protect our values, rights and safety
- Reforming the EU and it’s democracy (democratising)
- Climate change
What makes me enthusiastic about Volt:
- The positivity
- The fact that i'm working together with Europeans to shape the future of our continent
- That Volt has a pragmatic and constructive identity, which is rare
My main reasons for joining the "Community Organization Program":
- My new job as a community organizer for Volt and the responsibilities that come with it
- I do believe Volt is very unknown and i would like to contribute to putting her on the map
- In 2021 we’ll have elections. That seems far away but really isn't. We need to have a community and organisation by then. With which we can campaign for our values and candidates.
With my newly acquired knowledge my goal is to:
Build 40 city-teams in the Netherlands within 2 years.
