Talking basic income
Hosted by Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland
Date: Wednesday 20 February
Time: 3.45pm – 4.45pm
Room: Seminar Suite
A basic income is an unconditional payment that every citizen receives, regardless of their employment status and personal circumstances. It is a concept that has been around for centuries and in recent years has become a popular topic of discussion. Due to the rise of the automation of jobs and an increased interest in an economy that puts well-being first, basic income is often seen as a crucial part of our future. A basic income would radically transform the labour market and social security. Scottish Government are currently looking at whether a basic income experiment would be right for Scotland, so now is the time to join the discussion.
Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland is a volunteer run charity helping people stay informed about the basic income movement in Scotland and they want to help you start a conversation about basic income with your stakeholders. At this event you will learn about basic income, including the current situation with the feasibility studies, and you can ask all those burning questions. We will then look at how you can engage your audience on the topic of basic income and why this is important, we will explore the benefits and barriers to doing so.
