VIDEO: Nicole Teke at Crowdsource Week

Nicole Teke, Public Relations Coordinator of the French Movement for a Basic Income, spoke at the Crowdsourcing Week – Europe (held November 21-25, 2016, in Brussels, Belgium).  

Teke’s approximately 15 minute presentation served as an introduction to basic income — explaining the key features of the idea, outlining past and future sites of pilot studies, and addressing common concerns like “Would people just stop working?” (On the last point, Teke surveyed the audience and notes that, in general, people don’t think that they themselves would stop working.)  



Crowdsourcing Weeks occur globally and throughout the year, with the next set in the Swedish Laplands, to explore “the best practices in crowdsourcing and the collaborative economy that are fundamentally changing society, mindsets and possibilities across industries.”
