Ville-Veikko Pulkka, from The Social Insurance Institution

Albert Svan, Pirate Party of Iceland

Christian Engström, Pirate Party of Sweden

Tapani Karvinen, whom BIEN contacted about the event, told the Basic Income news team:

We hope that our seminar will broaden the basic income discussion by showing what’s happening at the moment in Nordic countries.

Iceland, Sweden and Finland are all having a serious thought about fixing social security, at least in part, by basic income. Leading countries will be first to see what to do and what not, so sharing that information without borders will bring the threshold lower in other states to consider basic income – which in turn, will accelerate the discussion further.
