We want to make a basic income a reality for all Europeans and live in a more social Europe. European Youth Event 2018 is the place to be to foster political dialogs with the youth (8,000 participants), NGOs and MEPs.

Did you know that robots paying us a basic income could have been possible in 2017?
MEP Mady Delvaux proposed a BI based on robot-tax. Only 14 votes were missing! The idea was to compensate the impact of automation on the European job market. 

This is not our only proposal. UBIE is a non-profit organisation that aims at the implementation of the basic income in Europe and beyond.

Basic income sometimes called "free money", is a fundamental right to receive a monthly allowance that guarantees you a safety net whatever your status in the society. Whether you have a paid work or not, you receive it, without condition, regardless of wealth.

There are many ways to make it happen, and we want to spread the word in Strasbourg!

For the first time, Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE) will participate in a huge event at the European Parliament, the European Youth Event 2018 (EYE2018). It takes place in Strasbourg from 1-2 June 2018. 

(If funded) We project also to print booklets to distribute during the event to prepare the European elections of 2019. In that way, we would raise awareness about the first steps to implement basic income at the European level.

On Sunday 3rd, we want to organise a workshop, open to the public, to continue planning our next actions.

-- About the project coordinator --

I am Aurélie Hampel, former secretary of Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE). 

Last December, I was invited by the European Parliament to be a speaker at the roundtable "Basic Income: return of Robin Hood" during EYE2018 event.

As I discovered that 8.000 young people would be part of the event, I challenged myself and decided to send as many UBI advocates as possible in Strasbourg.

Beyond the idea we promote, it will be for a majority of us, our first time at the EP, and a good occasion to experience our EU citizenship.
