Nordic UBI-day – Tampere (Finland)
Aug 23 @ 12:00 – 18:30

The Nordic day of the BIEN 2018 congress will be held in the afternoon of the 23rd of August in advance of the official opening of the congress. Everyone participating in the congress is invited to take part in this Nordic session, which will be held in English.

The main idea of the Nordic UBI Day session consists of the following thematic outlines:

A representative from each of the five Nordic countries will give a picture of the national situation in relation to the implementation of a basic income. Which are the concrete proposals that are on the political agenda? How large is the potential support for different ideas? How well does a BI fit the relatively universal Nordic welfare systems? What can we learn from the different experiences? There will be both separate presentations and a panel, during which the audience can ask questions and make comments.

Please register for the Nordic UBI Day HERE.

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.

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

Basic Income March – New York City @ Grand Concourse
Oct 26 @ 13:00 – 16:00
Basic Income March - New York City @ Grand Concourse | New York | United States

New Yorkers are organizing a march for Basic Income. Everyone who can get there is invited to join.

The Basic Income March, led by Basic Income NYC, is set for September 21 october 19, 2019. It might be accompanied by Basic Income Marches in other cities on the same day. The march can receive donations that are 100% tax deductible through its sponsor, the Keith Institute.
This march is one more sign of the rapid growth of the Basic Income movement. It’s especially existing to those of use who where following the movement (such as it was) the 1990s when the presence of a half dozen Basic Income supporters in the same room felt like a novelty. Every year for the past ten years or so the growth of the Basic Income movement has surprised me, and only looking back did I realize that it had been growing in less obvious ways since the mid-80s.
Unfortunately for me, I can’t march. I’ll be out of the country when it happen, but I hope all my fellow Basic Income supporters in New York and maybe the whole USA can participate.
If you’d like to volunteer to help with the event,  Basic Income NYC is having weekly planning meetings–in addition to their regular monthly Basic Income meet-ups. Contact them about getting involved in the planning either of the New York event or of the possible marches in other cities. More information about the Basic Income March is available at www.basicincomemarch.com.
