In the context of our transnational project around basic income and in particular the question of a possible European basic income, we are hosting a debate with the support of the Greek Green Institute in Athens.

The event will explore whether the concept of basic income can be a solution in Europe to the crisis and the economic implications it is having, in particular in Greece. Together with our international panel, we will discuss different approaches and ways forward.
