One of BIEN’s newest affiliates, Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland, will hold its official launch on November 26, 2016, at the Pearce Institute community center in Glasgow.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will include a combination of lectures, panel discussions, and interactive workshops, with the keynote address delivered by Guy Standing, cofounder and honorary co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network and Professorial Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies.
A detailed schedule and registration information are available at the event’s Eventbrite page.
Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland states that its mission is “to advance research and public education about the economic and social effects of Citizen’s Basic Income systems (defined here as schemes which guarantee an unconditional, non-withdrawable income payable to every citizen as a right of citizenship).”
