Could a guaranteed livable income create healthy societies and save the planet?

A grassroots group of Asian feminists address this question by organizing a panel of leading experts on basic income and environmental justice, taking place on Wednesday, October 17th 2018, the International Day to Eradicate Poverty. Guaranteed Livable Income and Sustainable Futures is the second annual public event on basic income hosted by Asian Women for Equality, and will take place at  La Maison du Développement Durable (House of Sustainable Development) in Montreal, Canada.

The panel includes Rob Rainer of Basic Income Canada Network, Cathy Orlando from the Citizen’s Climate Lobby Canada, Indigenous activist Cherry Smiley, and a host of other community organizations that will delve into what basic income could mean for sustainability and environmental justice, and how this relates to advancing Indigenous rights, women’s rights and racial equality.

Simultaneous interpretation will be available between French and English, and the venue is wheelchair accessible. Registration is possible here.
