Online Event: Basic Income Earth Network Congress 2021

The 22nd Basic Income Earth Network Congress will be hosted online from Wednesday 18 – Saturday 21 August 2021. The theme for the Congress is idea to reality. We want to consider how we take basic income from a big idea for big change to a reality.

Basic Income Network Scotland are excited to be putting together a programme packed with perspectives on basic income in Scotland, the wider UK and around the world. We will present insights into the status of basic income in Scotland, including: the feasibility study into a Scottish basic income experiment, political attitudes and work on basic income, civil society perspectives, creative and cultural demonstrations that represent the Scottish debate.

We’re proud to be a host organisation, planning a programme that will include strands on Basic Income and COVID, the Philosophy of UBI, Basic Income Activism, definitions of a Basic Income, the Scottish Basic Income feasibility study and more, as well as plenaries featuring some big names in the field of Basic Income.

There’ll be around 200 presentations, panels and events, making it the world’s biggest Basic Income conference!

The Congress will be hosted on Whova, an online conferencing platform.
