Universeel Basisinkomen – een Noord-Zuid dialoog – Brussel @ Universiteit St. Louis
Sep 23 @ 09:30 – 13:30

Universeel Basisinkomen –  Verdedigen we wel hetzelfde?

De discussie over het Universeel Basisinkomen groeit met de dag, zowel bij ons als elders.
Maar dit project kan in België alleen worden gerealiseerd als deze wordt ondersteund door politici van beide gemeenschappen.

Daarom organiseren wij in de voormiddag van 23 September in Brussel een bijeenkomst tijdens dewelke Nederlands- en Franstaligen, met een enige sympathie voor het basisinkomen, met elkaar in dialoog kunnen gaan.

Elke gast krijgt de gelegenheid om in dialoog te gaan met een vertegenwoordiger van dezelfde politieke familie uit de andere taalgemeenschap:

  • voor de Liberale familie: Nele Lijnen et Georges-Louis Bouchez
  • voor de Christen-Democratische familie : Sammy Mahdi et Joaquim Hernandez-Dispaux
  • voor de Socialistische familie: Yasmine Kerbache – ………….
  • voor de familie van de Groenen : Kristof Calvo et Philippe Lamberts.

De gesprekken hebben plaats op 23 september 2017 van 9:30 tot 13:30 aan de Universiteit St. Louis , Kruidtuinlaan 43, 1000 Brussel.

De Inschrijving is gratis maar verplicht. 
We vragen u dus om nu al uw aanwezigheid te bevestigen door ons een klein mailtje te sturen met uw naam en kwaliteiten naar volgend adres: https://goo.gl/forms/64d2nhDwH0yFT2r63
Alvast ook bedankt om deze informatie verder met anderen te willen delen !

Ter info : dit initiatief staat ook in het teken van de 10e Internationale Week van het Basisinkomen dat wereldwijd zal plaats vinden van 18 September tot en met 24 September 2017

Met dank bij voorbaat voor uw aandacht.

17th BIEN Congress 2017 – Lisboa (Portugal) @ Lisbon School of Economics and Management
Sep 25 – Sep 27 all-day

The association Unconditional Basic Income – Portugal, in partnership with the Centre for Ethics, Politics and Society (CEPS), at the University of Minho, the Centre for Research in European, Economic, Financial and Tax Law (CIDEEFF),  the Lisbon School of Economics and Management (ISEG), both at the University of Lisbon, the Portuguese Centre for Global History, at the New University of Lisbon, the party People, Animals, Nature (PAN), and Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE), will organize the 17th  BIEN Congress, from September 25 to 27, 2017.

Today basic income attracts the public’s attention as a potentially fair and realistic public policy. We can see this attention as important political parties in Europe have adopted the unconditional basic income as a policy objective. Our 2017 congress will discuss the different aspects of the politics of a basic income under the general theme: Implementing a Basic Income.

The End of Poverty: Getting Basic Income Right In Canada – Montreal @ Thomson House
Oct 17 @ 18:00 – 20:00

A public conversation on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty with Senator Kim Pate and Dr. Evelyn Forget.
How should Basic Income Policy be designed and implemented to benefit everyone?

Following the success of last year’s Creative Conversation About Basic Income — which brought together local Montrealers, artists, researchers, and advocates, and was organized in partnership with Revenu de Base Quebec and the University of the Streets Café at Concordia — this year brings leading voices in Basic and Guaranteed Livable Income conversations to Montreal to advance the discourse about ending poverty in Canada.
Our goal is to dig deeper into issues raised last time by inviting speakers directly implicated in some of the hardest questions: How do we design basic income for prisoners, refugees, new immigrants, and non-status residents? How does basic income address violence against women and systemic racism? How does basic income work with the existing fight for a livable minimum wage? What would the overall impact be on existing social services, on black market labour, on the cost of living, on our mental health, and on the environment? How do we pay for it, and how does it change us?

Mar 23 – Mar 25 all-day

Is Basic Income a political project more of the left or of the right? Is it ‘the capitalist road to communism’ or a libertarian conspiracy from Silicon Valley?
