8th Int'l Basic Income Week

What is Basic Income?

It's an income floor greater than zero that is...

Universal: Every person, irrespective of age, descent, place of residence, profession etc. will be entitled to receive this allocation.

Individual: Everyone has the right to UBI on an individual basis as this is the only way to prevent its appropriation by others.

Unconditional: As a human right, UBI shall not depend on any means-testing or preconditions. It is received regardless of employment or lack thereof.

High enough: The amount should be sufficient to prevent material poverty and provide the opportunity to participate in one's society.

What is Basic Income Week?

Basic Income Week was initiated in 2008 by activists in German-speaking countries. While international in its ambition from the outset, activities spread significantly in Europe only after the establishment of the new coalition Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE) in 2014.

Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN) in tandem with the /r/BasicIncome community on Reddit also contributed in 2014 to the week’s further globalization by organizing a series of online events with international basic income experts and activists.

In 2015, we now invite supporters and activists from around the world to further globalize this week of action for basic income by taking part in actions over the next week to spread awareness of the idea and help further mobilize its support.

Let’s all weave a “Safety Net for Life” together!

If you want to organize an event in your town or community, we offer the support of a shared website, can help with finding speakers and will publicize your event to a global audience.

Show the world that your event is part of a global push for basic income: http://basicincomeweek.org

Show your friends on Facebook and Twitter that you support basic income by adding the #basicincome hashtag to your profile photos.

Get in touch with your regional or international coordination team via the contact form.

Ger familiar with the answers to the most frequently asked questions about basic income.

Sign an active petition, create a video, write an article, share what's out there already.

Engage in discussions about basic income online and offline. Help grow the conversation.

Start a local chapter where you live to discuss basic income and participate in local actions together.

Use the creative power of art to prompt discussions.

And last but not least, ask yourself and those around you, "What would you do with your unconditional basic income?"
