Unconditional Basic Income and Degrowth Conference, Hamburg 19th-21st May 2016
Aim of the Conference
The aim of the conference is to create a dialogue between the movements for degrowth and basic income. Each movement should learn about the relevance of the other and ultimately aim to identify points of intersection, common challenges and opportunities for cooperation. Ideally a long term network will be established that supports both topics and increases their relevance on a European level. Find out more here. At all times there will be programme events in English and German.
UBIE (Unconditional Basic Income Europe) will be holding a meeting after the conference on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd May. Please go to the dedicated page for further information.

What is an Unconditional Basic Income?
An Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) is an income unconditionally granted to all members of a political community on an individual basis, without means test or work requirement. Unlike existing minimum income schemes in european countries, UBI is universal, individual, unconditional, and high enough to ensure an existence in dignity and participation in society.
