Universal Basic Income – A green answer to future challenges of the labour market? – Antwerp(BE) @ unkown location
May 19 @ 12:00 – 15:30

In 2017, the Green European Foundation started, with the support of different national partner foundations a transnational project on basic income with the objective to refine the concepts behind Universal Basic Income and contribute to the Europeanisation of the debate while taking into consideration the huge differences of social security systems across Europe. To this end, we formed a basic income expert group with representatives of Spain, Catalonia, Switzerland, Germany, Serbia, Belgium and Greece. In 2018, the focus of the ‘Basic Income for all EU Citizens?‘ project lies on the financial concepts and on formulating first ideas for a European pilot project on basic income that can deliver comparable results for different European countries.

About the event

During this session, we aim to make the link of those discussions to the broader debate on the future of work and whether basic income can become part of the Green answer to the challenges the labour market is currently facing. At the same time, the session shall serve as an opportunity to exchange on examples and different ideas of Green parties across Europe.

We will organise an interactive session, using the “fish bowl” method: the discussion starts in a semi-circle with one moderator and the three panelists and two empty chairs; after the first input by the moderator and the three panelists, the audience is invited to fill the empty chairs and take the role of panelists themselves; after the input the chairs have to be left to other participants.

Finally, the workshop will provide an opportunity to present the results of a planned survey we launched on the state of play of the UBI debate within the different Green parties across Europe as well as in the national public discourses.

“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.

For all questions, do not hesitate to contact us at support@mein-grundeinkommen.de

Good luck!
