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.

Event background

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

As it is clear that our planet calls for a different, new climate, GEF will, with the support of Grüne Bildungswerkstatt and Bildungszentrum St. Bernhard, open the space for green actors and proponents of a UBI to discuss how such a policy instrument could contribute to new policies for economy, society and the environment.
