Sunday: 11.00-14.00 CEST

Instead of our traditional public action where we flood a single street at a time with Volters and interact with a limited amount of citizens, we will instead turn all of Brussels purple on Sunday 7 April. This will give us a chance to practice our polished campaigning skills, and make new friends while doing so ! Here is a sneak peak at some of the missions you will embark on:

๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Finding hidden objects and people throughout Brussels

๐Ÿ“ Collecting signatures for Volt Belgium, and convincing Europeans to vote for Volt

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Committing to becoming (more) active in Volt

โž• And many more !

Whatโ€™s more, you wonโ€™t only be doing this for the pleasure of campaigning, the most successful campaigners will have the chance to win exclusive prizes, including limited Volt merch which you cannot acquire otherwise, as well as free tickets to Volt Europaโ€™s next General Assembly on 23 & 24 November !

The scavenger hunt will take place from 11:00 to 14:00 CEST on Sunday 7 April in the streets of Brussels. At around 14:00 we will gather around Place de la Bourse for drinks, before we all head home and continue campaigning in our chapters.
