The first ever UBIE Summer School on the Politics of Basic Income will take place in Barcelona, from 13 to 16 September, 2018. Experts, policy-makers and civil society activists have been invited to speak about the opportunities and challenges of basic income in EU politics, with a specific focus on the 2019 European Elections.
Learn, discuss and build a European campaign with Unconditional Basic Income Europe! Let us try to understand together the political opportunities and challenges of making basic income a hot topic in the political marketplace of ideas in the European Union. Join us for the first European Summer School of UBIE in Barcelona, 13-16 September 2018!
The main outcome of the Summer School should be a concrete campaign plan to promote basic income during the 2019 European Elections. To achieve this, we plan to structure the programme in the following way:
The planned programme of the event is as follows:
- Thursday 13th: Welcome Dinner
- Friday 14th: Lectures and roundtables with invited experts
- Saturday 15th: Workshops to develop a campaign plan for the 2019 European Elections
- Sunday 16th: Finalising the campaign plan and sightseeing in Barcelona with UBIE activists!
UBIE does not have a huge budget for this event – which means that it can only be a success if you lend us a hand. There is plenty on things to do in preparation for the event, e.g. programme coordination (identifying and inviting speakers), participant coordination (following up registrations, helping with travel arrangements), logistics (accommodation, catering, equipments), internal and external communications, budgeting/fundraising, leaflet and programme design…
Barcelona started conducting a minimum income trial experiment (known as “B-MINCOME”) last year, which many local people would like to develop into an actual basic income pilot. So we will also use the opportunity to discuss with local politicians and project partners how this attempt could increase public support for a real paradigm shift in social policies – towards a fully unconditional basic income.
Would you rather help out during the event? There are plenty of tasks, like participant coordination, event assistant, speaker assistant, and translator.
Can you help in any other way? Do you have questions? We will be delighted to hear! Please write to [email protected] to let us know any way in which you can help before or during this event!
Going to join us? Great! Please fill in the registration form and do not forget to indicate how you can help!
We will organise a coordination phone call during next week to discuss preparations with all those who wish to help make this happen. The date and time is yet to be confirmed.
Greetings on behalf of the organising team,
Leire, Dániel and Barb

Make sure to give us a like on Facebook to stay up to date about all Basic Income raffles in the future and sign up as so-called “Crowdhörnchen”on our website to participate in all future raffles automatically.
“Mein Grundeinkommen” is a four-year-old German non-profit that crowdfunds and raffles off unconditional basic incomes of 1.000,- € a month. We are interested in finding out what happens if we, as a society, have the financial resources to focus on our life-goals rather than on existential needs. We would like to encourage people to trust each other more and indulge in more self-determination. We are taking the basic income discussion beyond academia and into our everyday experience.
