What are Volt's political goals? / Healthy European Ecosystems

Healthy and sustainable diets

  • Harmonise European policies to promote a healthy diet with fewer animal-based products

  • Adapt food markets for better access to plant-based proteins

  • Adopt EU-wide measures to reduce the cost of healthy and sustainable foods

  • Make EU Green Public Procurement Guidelines mandatory for public food services

  • Increase R&D funding to develop healthy plant-based foods

  • Restrict the use of EU marketing subsidies to foods that we should be eating more of

  • Extend the EU ‘School Schemes for Fruit, Vegetables and Milk’ to include plant-based milk alternatives 

  • Boost EU R&D investment for cultivated meat, seafood and other animal derived products

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.
