golden heart held in hands

Our core values

Volt Luxembourg put its fundamental convictions on paper in May 2020.

Here you will find our core values, summarised on one page.

We are...

European

^
  • We believe that a sustainable future in a globalized world should be addressed at the level of the EU but also locally. States must delegate their powers above and under them.
  • We value citizen empowerment and condemn the overpower of lobbies.
  • We are in favour of regulated referendums as an exceptional tool for important decisions that should be binding for the Parliament and we are in favour of a more direct European democracy.
  • We value security, accountability, and transparency of National and European Politics.
  • We believe in equal rights for all European Citizens and are in favour of a full-fledged European Citizenship.

Sustainable

^
  • We are in favour of sustainable finance that is liable.
  • We think education, health systems and research are the core sectors of every governmental policy for a sustainable society.
  • We value the environment; we care about climate change and the preservation of ecosystems.
  • We think reliable and widely available public transportation is a core element to our future.
  • We are in favour of long-term investment over short-term profits and want to ensure finance serves human growth instead of financial growth for financial growth’s sake.

Pragmatic

^
  • We disagree with sacrificing social progress for economic growth.
  • We value the transparency of financial institutions.
  • We commit to an ethical, inclusive approach to technological development.
  • We think everyone should be able to find housing in Luxembourg at an affordable price.

Progressive

^
  • We condemn far right positions and we are in favour of a harmonised and inclusive immigration.
  • We actively support access to equitable rights for every human being regardless of gender and sexual orientation and all initiatives that publicly condemn the infringement of equality.
  • We are in favour of a balance between progressivism and conserving cultural identity.
  • We support the preservation of the Luxembourgish language and important cultural heritage as long as freedom of expression and inclusiveness is offered equally to every resident.

Innovative

^
  • We believe Luxembourg should lead by example in the green transition, guided by scientific evidence. We find it important that Luxembourg invests in a better quality of water and in renewable energy.
  • We are always open to progress and believe in political honesty and reserve the right to change our mind based on the latest scientific developments.
