UBIE is running a story contest on Basic Income! We’re looking for creatives who can write a fictional story on how we have achieved making Basic Income a reality in Europe.

If you can write a story from the perspective of a future (2030; 2050; 2525; your choice!) in which we have managed to make Basic Income happen and describe how life changed as a result, then you’re the author we’re looking for!


How can you participate?

  • Write your story (between 1000-2000 words)
  • Publish it anywhere where it can be publicly visible (your own blog, on Medium, a Story on your Facebook profile, or anywhere you can share a link to)
  • Share it with a post on your most active social media channel using the hashtag #HowWeMadeBasicIncomeHappen, also tagging UBIE (find us on facebook, twitter and instagram)
  • Send us the link to that post on board@ubie.org so we can keep track and you’re good to go!


The story that gets the most interactions (likes, comments, reshares) until Friday, January 15, 2021 at 23:59 CET will win a signed copy of Philippe Van Parijs’ and Yannick Vanderborght’s book “Basic Income. A Radical Proposal for a Free Society and a Sane Economy”!!!


Will you be the one?
