Social Equity & Justice

Equity & Justice is advocacy for fairness and impartiality in society and its institutions. Its the recognition of the diverse needs and circumstances of individuals, aiming to provide everyone with the necessary resources and opportunities to thrive. This does not necessarily mean identical treatment for everyone, by acknowledging that different people may require different support to achieve similar outcomes. Justice plays a crucial role, ensuring that all actions and policies are guided by principles of morality, legality, and ethics. Together, equity and justice create a foundation for a society where every person is valued and has the potential to succeed, irrespective of their background.


The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
