Our friends at Europe&Me are conducting a survey to gather opinions on the issue of an Unconditional Basic Income. By unconditional basic income (UBI) we understand that every person gets a fixed amount of money from the state every month. The exact amount and how it changes with age, location and rising income is up for discussion. The UBI would be sufficiently high so that other benefit schemes (unemployment benefits, pension, etc) could be phased out. However, everybody gets it without conditions and can spend it at his/her discretion.
Europe&Me will use the data gathered when they, along with FutureLab Europe, represent the voice of young Europeans at the EFC Belfast debate “Peace through Social Justice” on June 7 2012.
