The combined cost of living, labour market and healthcare crises present an opportunity for radical structural change within our economic and social systems. Is there scope for the introduction of a universal basic income as a transformative public health intervention?
As part of an academic partnership, funded by Wellcome, the RSA is exploring the potential for a UBI, how it could work in practice and what its impacts might be. The research brings together new analysis which shows that even a fiscally neutral UBI could have a significant effect in reducing poverty and insecurity and bring health benefits to those benefiting from the scheme.
Speakers to include report authors Matthew Johnson, Northumbria University and Hannah Webster, RSA; and guest speakers Ruth Lister CBE and Professor Guy Standing.
The event marks the launch of a new RSA report exploring the health and wellbeing impacts of a universal basic income. Read our interim report on a UBI and mental health
