EU leaders should show real commitment to the needs of European citizens facing precarious situations. It is time to move towards an unconditional guarantee of economic existence and dignity for all.
Citizens across Europe expect European Council to include basic income in their plans to boost EU economy, a new transnational YouGov poll commissioned by UBIE and WeMove finds.
Within a week, over 125.000 Europeans signed a petition calling on European leaders to establish a financial capacity to support all EU countries in introducing an Unconditional Basic Income as an urgent response to the Corona crisis.
A new European Parliament resolution on the collaborative economy fails to answer how social rights can be safeguarded in this sector. Only basic income can do this, says UBIE.
After an inspirational series of meetings in London 24-26 March, the new board of UBIE gets ready for a busy year ahead.
