On the 10th of April, Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE) will organise the first conference on Unconditional Basic Income at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels. The title of the conference is “Emancipating European Welfare”.

UBIE is a network of organisations and individuals who share the common view that an "Unconditional Basic Income" is a sustainable long term solution for our societies. This is a regular payment to each individual, without means-testing or work requirement and it is high enough to ensure an existence in dignity and full participation in society. UBIE was formed as a follow-up of the European Citizens’ Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income that was launched in 2013 and achieved support from nearly 300,000 EU citizens.

The conference will bring together activists, politicians, organisations and interested individuals to highlight the potential benefits of a unconditional basic income.
