ANDREA VENZON

Hey, this is Andrea!

I am 29-year old, originally from Italy and now living in London, and I am doing my best to improve our planet a bit!

You might wonder how - well, I have a few projects ongoing with Colombe Cahen-Salvador, my partner-in-crime ;)

We recently launched Forward, the global, progressive political movement in the making. To kickstart this project, we are challenging what should be the most important global election: the one to become the United Nations Secretary-General! Yes, just that! Concretely, this means that we are running progressive primaries to find a people-backed candidate to run for Secretary-General this year. If you want to learn more, here is the link to the website!

At the beginning of 2020, I also co-founded NOW!, a global movement aimed at uniting people all over the world to tackle the most significant challenges of our time, such as the erosion of democracy, climate change, and rising inequalities. One year in, we count more than 10,000 people across 120 countries, we launched five global campaigns, and we are rocking it! Check out NOW! at this link.

In 2017, in response to Brexit, I also co-founded a pan-European political movement, Volt Europa. When nationalism and populism were on the rise, we decided to stand for integration, cooperation, and openness. At the 2019 European elections, the movement presented candidates in seven European countries, managing to elect Damian Boeselager - one of my co-founders - a Euro-parliamentarian in Germany.

This is me in just a few words. If you want to learn more, please browse the rest of the website, and always feel free to get in touch!
