Speaker’s Corner Basisinkomen in Den Haag @ Centraal station
Sep 22 @ 13:00 – 16:00

Op zaterdag 22 september 2018 van 13.00-16.00 staat het basisteam VBI Den Haag-Zoetermeer met een stand en zeepkist voor het Centraal Station in Den Haag om aandacht te vragen voor het basisinkomen. Doel is het creëren van maatschappelijk draagvlak. We hopen zoveel mogelijk met voorbijgangers in gesprek te komen over het basisinkomen.

Interview over het basisinkomen – Amersfoort @ partytent
Sep 22 @ 14:00 – 17:00

Basisinkomen Amersfoort’ onderzoekt de mogelijkheden een Basisinkomen ook in deze stad in te voeren. We zijn op zoek naar mensen waarvoor de huidige uitkeringen en toeslagen ontoereikend zijn en die willen meewerken aan een interview. Het Basisinkomen maakt geen onderscheid tussen mensen die van een bijstandsuitkering leven of een relatief hoog inkomen genieten.

Ons onderzoek start met het houden van interviews onder mensen die het moeilijk hebben en voor wie het Basisinkomen een verlichting zou betekenen. Het verminderen van stress in de strijd om het dagelijks bestaan.

Wilt u ons ontmoeten, dan kan dat op zaterdag 22 september in onze tijdelijke huiskamer/partytent/op de Varkensmarkt. U kunt ons ook uw verhaal mailen op [email protected]

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

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.

Sep 21 @ 13:00 – 17:00

Om mensen vrij te laten worden is naast het wegnemen van angst het bestrijden van armoede de belangrijkste politieke inzet. Dat is de strekking van het betoog van de politiek filosofe Hannah Arendt om vrijheid te kunnen realiseren.

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.
