Could a basic income fix inequality?

June 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Could a UBI give us a more equal future, or would it just fix into place the social and economic injustices of the present? About this Event In a world searching for radical solutions to poverty and precarity, one solution seems straightforward. A universal basic income would give everyone a regular amount of money they can rely upon. But would it really have a massive impact upon inequality, or would the social and economic injustices of the past simply become fixed in a new system? Our webinar will discuss the potential for UBI to make a real impact upon inequality, with three panellists answering questions from The Equality Trust and the audience. Our panellists are: Cleo Goodman - Citizen's Basic Income Network Scotland Cleo is director of Citizen's Basic Income Network Scotland and Co-Founder of Compass' Basic Income Conversation. Cleo believes we should all have the means to survive with dignity, regardless of work status, regardless of circumstance. Kweku Amonoo-Quyst - Basic Income UK Kweku is an activist and speaker on UBI with Basic Income UK and a contributor to the Progressive Economics Forum proposal for a basic income. Dr Simon Duffy - UBI Lab Network Simon is a co-founder of UBI Lab Network, a growing network of local UBI campaigns across the UK and internationally. A Christian and a socialist, Simon believes that we must work together to ensure everyone can develop and share their unique gifts. Simon is also Director of the Centre for Welfare Reform and Chair of Citizen Network. Hosted by The Equality Trust and Sheffield Equality Group
