KELTY, SCOTLAND: “Basic Income: Real Social Security” (Jan 28)
BIEN’s Scottish affiliate, Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland (CBINS), will be holding a public event in Kelty, a town in Fife, on Saturday, January 28. The location is notable in part because the council area of Fife is presently investigating the possibility of a basic income pilot in one of its towns.
The theme of the event is “Basic Income: Real Social Security”. BIEN co-chair Karl Widerquist will be the keynote speaker, and additional invited speakers include members of the Fife Council, Scottish Government, Department of Work and Pensions, and Inland Revenue, who will discuss the latest plans and possibilities for a pilot project in Fife.
Launched in November 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland, CBINS is one of BIEN’s newest affiliates.
