With prominent business and government leaders backing calls to implement Universal Basic Income (UBI), the idea is receiving high levels of coverage and interest in Wales.
But what is UBI? How might it work, what might be the benefits, and is this something that could work in Wales? These questions will be examined and pondered upon in this joint RSA Wales/Cymru, RSA Scotland and IndyCube event.
The aim of this event is to continue discussions around Basic Income in a Welsh context, hearing from Jamie Cooke, Head of RSA Scotland, about the recent pilot project they have undertaken in Fife, and Guy Standing, Professor of Development Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, and a founder member and honorary co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), amongst others.
This informal event is free to attend and open to Fellows, friends, and colleagues interested in this subject. It will include refreshments and a light lunch.
