Austrian activist Helmo Pape has founded the initiative Generation Grundeinkommen (“Generation Basic Income”) to campaign for a basic income in Austria. The initiative will be launched at an event in Vienna on January 19, 2017.

 

Featured speakers include:

• Film director Christian Tod, writer and director of the basic income documentary Free Lunch Society.

Enno Schmidt, co-director of an earlier influential basic income documentary (Grundeinkommen – ein Kulturimpuls) and co-initiator of the Swiss referendum campaign.

Götz Werner, founder of the drugstore chain dm-drogerie markt and author of the influential book 1000€ für Jeden Freiheit Gleichheit Grundeinkommen, which makes the case for a basic income of 1000€ per month in Germany.

I was a statistician, then a philosopher, then a journalist for a certain Basic Income News, and I have never been the sort to wed myself to any specific position or career path. (I have always chosen to remain in the precariat for this reason: my sense of duty is strong enough that I’d risk imperiling my own self-development if I were to accept a permanent position.) If you want to learn more about what I’m about, and how I see my ideal roles in the basic income community going forth, read the “cover letter” of sorts that is my Patreon homepage (updated November 2017).
