The UK-based forum GlobalNet 21 invites everyone to join a webinar in which they will discuss the idea of a Universal Basic Income with Basic Income UK, a collective of independent advocates of unconditional basic income as a progressive social policy for the United Kingdom and beyond.

The webinar will be held on Monday, February 29, 2016 at 7pm UK time.

In the event description, GlobalNet 21 states, “When the nature of work is changing fast and the benefit system we have seems not fit for [its] purpose, then maybe it is time to look at the Universal Basic Income as the way of the future.”

This webinar is being run in collaboration with the New Europeans as part of a series of events on Basic Income in Europe.

Presenters include:

  • Barb Jacobson, Coordinator of Basic Income UK and member of UBI-Europe.
  • Becca Kirkpatrick, Co-Organiser of the Basic Income Meetup Group and member of Positive Money and GlobalNet21.

More details can be found at the meet-up page.
