Europe Initiative

Since the Federal Council unilaterally broke off the seven-year negotiations on the framework agreement between Switzerland and the European Union in 2021, European policy has been at an almost complete standstill for over a year now. It is ice time.

Parliament subsequently wanted to draft a European law, but not much has happened since then: the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Council of States (APK-S) has already postponed the proposal three times.

And this is precisely where the people come into play: with the Europe Initiative, the people can force the Federal Council to put an end to this refusal. It gives the government a clear, binding mandate with the aim of stabilising Swiss relations with the EU and restoring our ability to act.

Together with our alliance partners of Operation Libero, the Greens, La Suisse en Europe, Suisseculture and the VSS, we want to put an end to this refusal.

Help break the ice between Switzerland and the EU!

Volt Switzerland

Volt is a Pan-European progressive political movement, focused on changing the way politics is done and shaping the future of Europe! A movement committed to strengthening the Europe we all share.

We are a people-powered movement, who under the visible threat of populism and nationalism, corruption and the fruitless ‘old way’ of doing politics, have decided it is time to take action! Time to shape our future and not allow the past to define our societies!

Working together we can shape Europe into a united Europe, under the highest standards of environmental, human, and social development. A Europe where its citizens and residents, are able to develop their true potential and have the necessary tools to shape their societies. Through a grassroots approach to politics, and community organising initiatives, we are connecting and enabling communities, at a local and national level, to innovate and shape politics from their homes to the European level!

Join us and let's build our Future together!
