Basic Income Week, in this year of 2018, will be happening from the 17th up to the 23rd of September, around the globe. It will be the 11th event of its type, under the sub-title “Basic Income: an income you can count on”. Although the designated days for the event are the above, there will be events on other days, as can be seen in the week’s calendar. Among a large number of included events, a special one is planned to be released on the 18th of September, consisting of each person uploading a picture online, with supportive words about basic income.
There is also a short video presenting basic income at the event’s webpage, featuring short sections of known activists’ interviews.

This year’s 11th Basic Income Week is happening in September, from the 17th to the 23rd, with the motto: “Basic Income: An income you can count on!”
All planned events related to basic income in that week (but not limited to) are scheduled at a dedicated calendar, and new events can be submitted through a specific contact form. Also, on the second day of the Week – 18th of September – a global banner event will be performed, open to all participants. A Videothon Playlist will also be compiled, during the week, containing all the videos sent by participants, an idea already explored at the 10th Basic Income Week in 2017.
Basic Income Week has been happening since 2008, having been initiated by Günter Sölken, at the time through the joint operation of Basic Income Network Germany, Basic Income Network and Social Cohesion Austria, Switzerland BIEN and of Attack Germany, Attack Austria and Attack Switzerland, plus the help of many independent basic income initiatives in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Since then the event has grown to a truly international event, with participants and organized events from around the globe.
