Just transition

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, this event shall be postponed. Please come back later for more information!

 

We’re hosting an essential discussion on the role of Universal Basic Income in the just transition towards a carbon-neutral society, with focus on how this could help young people .

GEF, together with FYEG is holding a workshop in Barcelona, entitled ‘It’s Not Just a Transition: Youth in Cities’. The workshop will take place in two parts:

  1. Social justice perspective from each track implemented during the event (transport, urban development, energy). For each track, a vision for the future is previously imagined. In this session we link this vision to the vision for a more just city for the youth.
  2. Discussion on the role of UBI in the transition towards a carbon-neutral society, with focus on how this could help young people (1) realize their dreams/their vision for the future and (2) become more politically active. We will look into the B-Mincome experiment done in Barcelona.

The seminar kicks-off our 6-partner project ‘Change of Mindset – Civil Society dialogue around UBI, Social Justice and Climate impact‘, which aims to spark a stronger civil society dialogue to bring about the change of mindset needed to raise acceptance of universal basic income among the public and to deepen the debate on our conceptions of productivity and work.
