With increasing inequalities and the intensifying climate crisis it is high time to explore alternative ways of organising our societies! Join us for our upcoming conference will where we will explore if universal basic income can be part of the solution.
As part of our transnational project Basic Income – European Public Debate, which has been implemented across Europe since 2017, GEF is holding a two-fold event in Austria to explore different positions on universal basic income (UBI) across Europe.
About the event
Following a one-day conference bringing together green actors with proponents and experts of UBI from Austria and other parts of Europe, organised by GEF with the support of Grüne Bildungswerkstatt and Bildungszentrum St. Bernhard, a public debate will be organised to invite citizens to engage with the topic of UBI. Together, the attendees will explore if a UBI can be a component to tranform our economy and society in order to fight climate change.
19:00 Welcome: Positioning and synthesis of the conference during the day
19:30 Fishbowl discussions (30 minutes each) between experts, politicians and audience on three thematic strands:
- UBI, social and economic inclusion
- UBI, financing and alternative economic models
- UBI from a feminist perspective
21:00 Perspectives, possibilities and conclusion
