Unconditional Basic Income Europe
Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE) is an international network connecting activists and initiatives from 25 countries. We advocate for the implementation of Basic Income in Europe and its recognition as a Universal Human Right. As a result of our efforts, basic income is now entering the policy agenda in many European countries and on a European Union (EU) level. Together with you, we want to push this development even further.
The first module of the interactive exhibition “Wow! Basic Income” went public in Dornach (Switzerland) and Hamburg (Germany).
The Youth Group of UBIE participated for the third time in the European Youth Event in Strasbourg, hosting a workshop on Basic Income!
A network of researchers and activists could benefit from your support in advocating for local basic income pilots this summer!
The idea of a European universal basic income bears potential as a palpable way of delivering on the promise of ‘social Europe’. However, many proposals remain vague. We outline a concrete policy design for an EU-wide basic income to foster debates on how such a policy could look like in practice.
The European Pillar of Social Rights will not be successful without a new social paradigm beyond the traditional labour market focus.
In 2020 we held a story contest on #HowWeMadeBasicIncomeHappen. This is the winning story of Maria!
