electoral program

For the next for years we will keep fighting to keep Groningen young and vibrant. Therefore a vote for us is a vote for an energetic city. We stick up for the concerns of the young generations in Groningen, but keep the interests of everyone in the city alive. A young and striving attitude, that is the way we have committed to politics, and we will keep doing so! Other than most political parties, we will always fight for a innovation, liveliness and the knowledge economy. In our electoral program you can read what and how we are planning to do so.
