Co-President

Born and raised in South Tyrol, I studied archaeology and forensic anthropology in Innsbruck, Rome, Bologna, Pisa and Milan. I therefore feel like a European with South Tyrolean roots and Italian love for life. It is necessary that we tackle the global problems of our time together, because we cannot solve them alone.

Alexander Harrer

Co-President

Winegrower, lawyer, hobby philosopher, alleged charm bolt and fun dumpling. Grown up in the surroundings of Vienna, I feel like a citizen of the world, a Viennese, Austrian, European, European and generally like anybody else. Western democracies are currently coming under massive pressure from both inside and outside, and it is obvious that we alone cannot effectively represent our interests in world politics. But together it is possible! Beyond national borders, Volt - as a European party - can make it possible for the whole of Europe to speak with one voice!

Because the air, the water and the earth are the most important goods in the world, I, as (ex-)banker and risk manager, want to develop our system into a sustainable and stable future. A united and strong Europe is not only my solution, but our solution. I am a citizen of the world, born in Sofia, living in Vienna and carrying Europe in my heart.

As a budding natural scientist, I have always missed pragmatism in politics. Volt wants to bring exactly that to bear by seeking holistic solutions to post-national problems such as climate change, drawing on science and best practices.

Richard Knoll

Community Lead

"That's it!" I thought to myself when I saw this ARTE documentary about Volt for the first time. And it was. At that time fresh out of the Erasmus experience with a blossoming European heart, I decided to join Volt as soon as possible. After moving from Dresden to Vienna, the time had come. I now work here as a structural engineer and am involved at Volt as community lead. The task is very exciting because I work closely with the European team and come up with my own concepts. I look forward to a successful cooperation with each and every one of you!

Lena

Lena Hohenkamp

Communications Lead

Enthusiastic spatial planner with the conviction that politics have the task to shape instead of only acting according to votes. Large problems require large solutions, so it makes sense to tackle them within a pan-European party. What brought me to Volt was the incentive not to just watch, but to finally help shape Europe myself.

Vienna City Coordinator

I want to live in a united Europe - a Europe that sticks together and tackles the major problems of our time together. Because only in such a Europe can Vienna remain the most beautiful city in the world!

Vienna City Coordinator

I am involved with Volt because it offers the chance to contribute my opinions and ideas without detours and to shape Europe's future together. Volt is also a great opportunity for me to get to know the political process at close quarters.

Carolina

Carolina Paulmichl

Women of Volt Coordinator

As a global citizen in Vienna I stand up for those who are affected by structural discrimination - politics only make sense to me if they are made for everybody. That's why I stand for a consistent, inclusive policy in which we should all have the opportunity to shape the future of tomorrow's Europe.

Queer Volt Coordinator

I want to achieve that Europe holds together even more, that every person is accepted as he or she is and I am happy that thanks to Volt I can be a voice for Europeans!

Sebastian Scholze

Young Volt Coordinator

Education and the school system are essential institutions for our future. At the moment, they are only partially able to prepare us humanistically and individually for the personal and social challenges of each generation. In order to solve this and many other problems of youth politics, I want to achieve an alternative to the deadlocked system with Young Volt. Young people should get involved and be able to shape their own future based on factual realities!

Press Speaker

Volt Europe lives through its members, through them, him, you and me. Together we can take action and do something directly for Europe and our future without having to fight our way through dusty party structures. Volt is all of us who are actively engaged for Europe, Austria and Vienna. Whether in the city or in the country.
