European countries will start a Europe wide Citizens’ Initiative to get Basic Income on the agenda of the European Commission.
The start of the campain will be the first friday after the BIW on 25th of september 2020. The campain ends 24th of september 2021. During this time it should be possible to obtain one million signatures to get the European Commission working on this.
Campains motto is:
Start Unconditional Basic Incomes throughout the EU
The campain site is on https://eci-ubi.eu
The aim is to establish the introduction of unconditional basic incomes throughout the EU which ensure every person’s material existence and opportunity to participate in society as part of its economic policy.
This aim shall be reached while remaining within the competences conferred to the EU by the Treaties.
We request the EU Commission to make a proposal for unconditional basic incomes throughout the EU, which reduce regional disparities in order to strengthen the economic, social and territorial cohesion in the EU.
This shall realize the aim of the joint statement by the European Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission, stated in 2017, that “the EU and its member states will also support efficient, sustainable and equitable social protection systems to guarantee basic income” in order to combat inequality.
