Welcome to a conference launching the pamphlet Basic Income – Cornerstone of the Nordic Welfare State

29.11.2021 at 10:00 – 18:00 Finnish time (GMT + 2) in Luckan – the Finland-Swedish information and cultural centre Georgsgatan (Yrjönkatu) 27, Helsinki, Finland

Organiser: BIEN Finland in cooperation with Luckan and Prakticum.

With this pamphlet, the Nordic Basic Income Earth Networks (BIEN) urge the Nordic governments to introduce universal basic income and show a roadmap for a more just and sustainable world, as well as a more democratic economy. With the participation of the contributors to the pamphlet and invited guests, the morning session, 10:00 – 13:00, will be devoted to the content of the pamphlet.

The afternoon session, 14:00 – 17:00, deals with the financing of universal basic income. In line with this roadmap, Geoff Crocker will, based on his book Basic Income and Sovereign Money: The Alternative to Economic Crisis and Austerity Policy, elaborate on the affordability of basic income. The language of both the pamphlet and the conference is English and there will be no translation available.
