What is Universal Basic Income?
“… a periodic cash payment unconditionally delivered to all on an individual basis, without means- test or work requirement.”
This is the first meeting of UBI Lab North East. It will be an opportunity to find out more about basic income, the impact it could have in the North East and how to get involved with the group.
We will be joined by Community Organiser, Michael Pugh, who will share his experience from a recent research trip to North America and India where he met participants from Basic Income pilot trials. How did they change people's lives and how this would translate to the North East?
Who are UBI Lab North East?
A group of people interested in basic income and keen to explore how the policy would benefit the North East. Everyone is welcome to join the group.
What do we intend to do?
To generate discussion about basic income, promote the idea with decision makers and listen to the public’s views and concerns about the subject. This could include campaigning for a pilot study to happen in the region.
We will aim to meet once a month to explore basic income from a series of different perspectives.
