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.
