Time for a Basic Income in Scotland?
This conference marks the launch of a new Scottish organisation, Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland SC0460356 (CBINS), promoting public understanding about and support for Basic Income (BI) www.cbin.scot
CBINS and conference co-sponsors – RSA Scotland, GalGael, and the Centre for Human Ecology - warmly invite interested individuals and organisations to come and join them in exploring the many practical ways that BI could increase economic and social inclusion, reduce poverty, and improve individual work/life balance and societal wellbeing in Scotland.
Register here to attend.
The conference will be a very interactive forum providing information about action research on BI in European and other countries, discussing key Scottish social and economic challenges, and collaborating to shape options for introducing BI to Scotland.
We are particularly pleased to have working with us, Professor Guy Standing, co-founder of the Basic Income Earth Network and internationally debated author of ground-breaking books on work, security and the economy. Having spoken in Scotland several times in recent years, including the 2016 RSA Scotland Angus Millar Lecture, he is well placed to help us tailor BI to the Scottish context.
