A Basic Income – A Future with Dignity

This event offers an afternoon of participative information sharing and conversation about basic income. Brief presentations will explain the concept of a Basic Income and describe some of the possibilities that it can both release human creativity and be a real alternative to the present welfare system.

The main business will begin at 14.00. A light lunch will be provided at 13.00 and there will be time for informal meeting and greeting. This is a free event (including lunch).
