With prominent business and government leaders backing calls to implement universal basic income (UBI), the idea is receiving high levels of coverage and interest across the north of England.

But what is UBI? How might it work, what might be the benefits, and is this something that could work in the North? These questions will be examined and pondered upon in this joint RSA and Basic Income North event.

The aim of this event is to continue discussions around Basic Income in a Northern context, and to show what incremental changes can be made to current systems to achieve a Basic Income in due course.

This informal event is free to attend and open to Fellows, friends, and colleagues interested in this subject.
