Welcome to the Volt Team in Freiburg in Breisgau
Since 2018, the european Party Volt is active in Freiburg. We want to shape our collective future and create a Europe that truly promotes democracy, solidarity and climate justice.
We meet regularly to plan events, discuss the politics of the day and meet other people and teams across the continent that work together to build the Europe of tomorrow.

You're new at Volt? Our community lead Anna will gladly show you around and introduce you to the way we work!
Our meet&greets are scheduled every first tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. Whenever possible, we meet in person in a bar, café or just outside in the park or at the Dreisam river. When not possible, for instance during major global pandemics, we meet online.
All our upcoming events are listed below and on our Facebook-page:
If you want to join, you can send us a mail, or a direct message on Instagram, Facebook or Whatsapp!
Volt Germany and Volt Europe also regularly organize online meet&greets that are open to anyone anywhere. All information on those can be found here.
Do I need to bring something
No one has to bring anything or know anything to attend. We simply want to connect with people that see the future of Europe as a common undertaking, preferably over a cold drink of choice.
If you really want to bring something, we've never said no to homemade Cookies, though ;)
What are M&Gs about?
From specifically Volt-related topics to current events or vegan chilli-recipes, our meet&greets are for bringing likeminded people together.
For more work-focussed talk, we meet every non-first-of-the-month Tuesday. There, we'll discuss policy-topics, event organizing and elections planning.
Where do the M&Gs take place?
Whenever possible, we meet in person in a bar, café or just outside in the park or at the Dreisam river. When not possible, for instance during major global pandemics, we meet online.
Check our Events listing above for more Info, or just ask us via Mail or DM. We do write back and we don't bite :D
What can I expect from attending a M&G?
Getting to know Volt and Volters a little.
We'll introduce you to what Volt is, what it does and what we as a city team are doing right now. Most months, we'll have a short "European Report" about what other Volt teams accross the continent have been up to in the last month.
