The next meeting of Unconditional Basic Income Europe will be held in Lisbon, Portugal on Sunday, 24th September 2017, one day before the start of the 17th BIEN Congress.

This is the first time we will have an UBIE meeting at the same place and time as a BIEN Congress and we have a great chance to get to know each other better. UBIE therefore kindly invites participants of the Congress and representatives from BIEN to attend our meeting, as well.

The 2017 BIEN congress will discuss the different aspects of the politics of a basic income under the general theme “Implementing a Basic Income”. Further information on the Congress is available on the BIEN website.

UBIE members are all cordially invited to attend the BIEN Congress. Attendance is free for those who cannot afford the registration fee. Fees apply in any case for those who need a certificate of attendance or are make a presentation. Registration is mandatory and can be done on the Congress website.

UBIE will have a workshop at the Congress on Wednesday, 27th Sept 9.00 – 11.00.
