Summary of this Workshop
Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a policy that is gaining traction worldwide, and experiments in implementation are beginning. The idea behind it is that every citizen receives an unconditional basic income in perpetuity, doing away with means tested social welfare where it exists, and introducing social security where it does not. Arguments for UBI are many and complex, but touch on an imagined future where work, social equity and community participation are different.
So, if you want to consider how a universal basic income might fit with the future of work, improve social equity and strengthen communities, come along this exciting participative session.
For an initial psychological assessment of UBI see: http://www.psychchange.org/uploads/9/7/9/7/97971280/ubi_for_web_updated.pdf
