In just a few months time, citizens across Europe will be asked to elect a new European Parliament. As citizens, we aim for a new majority that wants to re-build solidarity in the EU and is open to discuss basic income as a new basis for a social Europe. So the focus of Unconditional Basic Income’s 2019 General Assembly – besides of electing a new Core Group – will be on possible campaigns before and after the elections.
The next UBIE meeting will take place in Berlin, 21-24 March 2019. The General Assembly will take place on Saturday, 23 March. Before and after, we intend to organise working group sessions (Friday and Sunday) and also some public debates (possibly Thursday and Friday).
Thursday, 21 March, 7pm: Public Event on Basic Income Experiments
Friday, 22 March, 4-8pm: Discussion on UBIE’s priorities for 2019/20
Saturday, 23 March, 9am-7pm: General Assembly
Sunday, 24 March, 9am-2pm: Workshops
We will get back to you with more details and an official invitation soon.
We are meeting in Berlin, as we were not able to secure the rooms we needed in Brussels for a conference there as we originally planned. But we still plan to do this conference later this year, i.e. September/October.
