Basic Income Week event in Southend on Sea @ The Olde Trout Tavern
Sep 23 @ 18:30 – 20:30

Basic Income: a fairer world is possible

There are many ways to implement Basic Income, but the ultimate intent is that every citizen receives a payment – from cradle to grave, whether working or not. It sounds Utopian and radical, but it IS entirely achievable.

Come along to learn more about Basic Income and hear about trials that have taken place around the world.

We’ll then have a discussion about what we can do at a local level, and how we could influence government policy.

We’re hosting an event on Sunday 23 September at The Olde Trout Tavern in Southend on Sea. (Upstairs, from 6.30pm, free.)  if you want to hang around afterwards, there’s a quiz at the pub from 8.30.

There’ll be an overview of UBI and its history, and a few case studies. We’ll then have a conversation about what a UBI could mean to us personally, and to our communities, and how we could make it a reality.

Basic Income and the Euro-Dividend as sociopolitical pillars of the EU and its member countries – Freiburg (DE) @ University of Freiburg
Oct 11 – Oct 12 all-day

BASIC INCOME AND THE EURO-DIVIDEND AS SOCIOPOLITICAL
PILLARS OF THE EU AND ITS MEMBER COUNTRIES

Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Freiburg, Germany October 11-12, 2018

In Europe, the public debate about a universal basic income (UBI) is usually a national one. In
recent years a European version of a UBI has attracted more and more attention – primarily pushed
by the suggestion of Philippe Van Parijs titled a “Euro-Dividend”.

This conference aims to shed light at pros and cons of a EU wide UBI regulation and its relation to
national approaches from an interdisciplinary perspective. Both UBI approaches shall be analysed
and discussed with respect to justice, economic and migration effects, legal aspects, creation of
solidarity in the EU, and political viability. On the first day, the conference will address general
issues about UBI while the schedule of the second day contains EU-related concepts just like the
Euro-Dividend.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite papers from Philosophy, Sociology, Political Science, Law, and Economics and even
Technical Sciences addressing one or more of the following topics:

  • UBI and arguments of freedom, solidarity, social and gender justice
  • Changing time allocation and shifting time sovereignty, voluntarism and creativity
  • Legal aspects of UBI
  • Experiments and microsimulations on UBI’s level and impact
  • UBI in the digital age / Robots, AI, Labor, and the Welfare State
  • The European Pillar of Social Rights, UBI, and Euro-Dividend: Creating European Solidarity
  • Financial feasibility of a UBI and financing concepts of a Euro-Dividend
  • EU labour market effects and migration (on international level and within the EU)

Please send title and abstract of about one-page in length by June 11th, 2018, to
[email protected] Participants will be informed about the acceptance of
their papers by July 2nd.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Olli Kangas (Kela, Finland)
  • Philippe Van Parijs (Université catholique de Louvain)
  • Antje Schrupp (freelance journalist)
  • Mancolm Torry (London School of Economics)

Organization:

  • Sascha Liebermann (Alanus University, Alfter)
  • Bernhard Neumärker (University of Freiburg)
  • In cooperation with: Frankreichzentrum, Freiburg

Organized by the Department of Economic Policy and Constitutional Economic Theory we aim to gather relevant leading researchers and thinkers in Europe to discuss an EU wide approach of a basic income.

If you have any questions Max Trommsdorff glad to assist you.

UBIE Meeting & General Assembly in BERLIN @ werkstatt der kulturen
Mar 21 – Mar 24 all-day
In just a few months time, citizens across Europe will be asked to elect a new European Parliament. As citizens, we aim for a new majority that wants to re-build solidarity in the EU and is open to discuss basic income as a new basis for a social Europe. So the focus of Unconditional Basic Income’s 2019 General Assembly – besides of electing a new Core Group – will be on possible campaigns before and after the elections.

The next UBIE meeting will take place in Berlin21-24 March 2019. The General Assembly will take place on Saturday, 23 March. Before and after, we intend to organise working group sessions (Friday and Sunday) and also some public debates (possibly Thursday and Friday).

  • Thursday, 21 March, 7pm: Public Event on Basic Income Experiments
  • Friday, 22 March, 4-8pm: Discussion on UBIE’s priorities for 2019/20
  • Saturday, 23 March, 9am-7pm: General Assembly
  • Sunday, 24 March, 9am-2pm: Workshops

We will get back to you with more details and an official invitation soon.

We are meeting in Berlin, as we were not able to secure the rooms we needed in Brussels for a conference there as we originally planned. But we still plan to do this conference later this year, i.e. September/October.
Kind greetings,
the UBIE Core Group

Public Meeting on Money – Dublin (IE) @ Carmelite Community Center
Sep 18 @ 19:00 – 21:00

We would like to welcome welcome you to an evening of discussions around money and monetary policies for supporting much-needed public programs including the Green New Deal and basic income.

Basic Income Ireland is proud to present this event as part of the International Basic Income Week. This is a free event.

Speakers

  1. Deirdre de Burca: “The role of innovative monetary policies in supporting a Green New Deal and a more sustainable future for Europe and the world”
    Deirdre is a former Green Party public representative and current Advocacy Co-ordinator with the global civil society network Forus International (forus-international.org).
  2. Conor McCabe: “Towards a democratization of money, credit and financial systems”Conor is the author of Money (Sireacht: Longings for another Ireland series, Cork University Press, 2018) and a research associate with the UCD Equality Studies Centre. He has written extensively on Irish finance and is involved in activist education, working with political, trade union, and community groups.

  3. Tony Weekes: “Let’s make money work for everyone”Tony describes himself as “a repentant one-time academic economist”.

Basic Income is the proposal that the state should make a regular payment to every individual resident regardless of circumstances, without any means test or work requirement. It would be enough to live a frugal but decent life without additional income.

To support Basic Income Week, make a photo with #countonbasicincome in it, and share it on September 18, using #countonbasicincome

Basic Income Café – Den Haag (NL) @ The Grey Space in the Middle
Sep 19 @ 17:00 – 18:00
Basic Income Café - Den Haag (NL) @ The Grey Space in the Middle | Den Haag | Zuid-Holland | Netherlands

It looks like the definition of work is changing. What happens when jobs become rapidly automated at the same time that more and more people become self-employed freelancers? Should we be creating jobs just to keep people busy so they too can earn a living? What happens if we secured income instead of jobs?

Basic Income Café (a project by Martina Huynh in collaboration with Manon van Hoeckel) wants to find out how the definition of work and income is changing in The Netherlands today. What kind of work do we value and why? Does the salary really reflect how much we appreciate someone’s work?

For that we are using the interactive installation (also called Basic Income Café), in which coffee is used as a metaphor to visualize the flow of money in two basic income economies. Your first cup of ‘basic income’ coffee is for free, for more you need to physically work (grind up some beans).

So come watch the coffee taxes flow, while experiencing economic models in new playful ways by drinking coffee!

At the opening, we have short presentations by:

  • Martina Huynh who will talk about Basic Income Café and the research behind the project – How is the topic of basic income being discussed at the moment?
  • Manon van Hoeckel who will share her findings of working with homeless youngsters in The Hague. What does it mean to be financially vulnerable today and how can design contribute to ease conversation between diverse groups of people?

Basic Income Café will be open three days a week from September 19 to December 19.

Experience and Discuss
Centraal in dit project staat het Basic Income Café, een interactieve installatie ontworpen door Martina Huynh. In deze installatie wordt koffie gebruikt als metafoor voor de geldstroom in twee alternatieve economieën.
Een belevenis an sich, een plek voor onderzoek en een gespreksstarter met als onderwerp het basisinkomen

 

http://martinahuynh.com/basic_income_cafe.html

Tijdens de opening zullen er korte presentaties gegeven worden door:

  • Martina Huynh – Hoe wordt er tegenwoordig gekeken naar het basisinkomen?
  • Manon van Hoeckel  -Hoe is het om financieel kwetsbaar te zijn? En hoe kan design een bijdrage leveren aan het vergemakkelijken van conversatie tussen verschillende groepen mensen?
    Kom koffiedik kijken en praat mee over de toekomst van werk en inkomen!

Basic Income Café: Widening Horizons – Rotterdam (NL) @ Huis der Zotheid
Sep 20 @ 17:00 – 19:00

Widening horizons
by mining the wealth of creative thinkers: to seize the empowering potentials of the digital age with artists as precursors and basic income as the means.

To present and introduce the book and have talk with Vivian Storlund from Finland, we have a pleasure to have Alexander de Roo  (chair of the Dutch Society for Basic Income -Vereniging Basisinkomen) and Bjorn de Leeuw.

The creative sector has to a great extent overtaken industrial production as an economic driver in advanced economies. There is a new world on the internet forming new communities of interest as well as creating a new economy, the platform economy. Notwithstanding, working life continues to be regulated according to the industrial rationale with full-time, long-term employment. A consequence of this is that many persons are deprived of the legal protection labour legislation and collective agreements are intended to provide. This has led to a growing precariat. Those who do not have such ‘standard employment’ can often face Kafka-like situations being disciplined in multiple ways. This is a situation in which artists have long-standing experience.

To cite the Maltese cultural activist Narcy Calamatta: Goldoni died destitute in Paris a day before the revolutionary forces gave him a pension, Caravaggio died destitute on the streets of Porto Ercole, Mozart died burdened with debts, Molière was buried in unconsecrated ground. What can we do to reverse this status?, Calamatta asks.

We need to update our mental software to recognise and remove both theoretical and legal shackles so that we can seize the great opportunities the digital age offers. Artists can act as precursors in this exercise and basic income as a means to ensure that everybody can live a life as an active citizen.

Basinkomstöl – Stockholm @ Restaurang Indira
Sep 20 @ 18:00 – 21:00

Nästa basinkomstöl är mitt under den internationella basinkomstveckan! Vad det innebär för oss har jag ingen aning om, men läs gärna och diskutera gärna i kommentarerna nedan 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/events/310298613181576/

Men det kan ju kännas bra att ta en basinkomstöl i alla fall? Och det är ju fredag den här gången! Harald har lovat att i detalj studera Andrew Yangs finansiering. Glömmer han det så finns det här: https://www.yang2020.com/what-is-freedom-dividend-faq/

Och vi får dessutom besök av en skapare av grönsaksodlarrobotar. Kopplingen till basinkomst är självklar! Efter några timmar i alla fall.

Varmt välkomna 🙂

We, Basic Income Korean Network decided recently to host an event during the 12th IBIW. So I’d like you to know about our event.
We will host a seminar at 10:30 AM on Saturday, 21st September, whose title is the “Seminar with Emeritus Professor of Economics Makoto Itoh: Social Thoughts and Theories of Basic Income.” Professor Itoh is a prominent scholar of Marxian political economy (the Uno School) in Japan.

  • Afsluiting

Het definitieve programma met de sprekers zal op de website www.vrijzinnigepartij.nl staan. Interessant, dus noteer van de datum, zaterdagmiddag 21 september in je agenda.
