New UBI research group
A new group has been set up to connect students and researcher into basic income. If you would like to participate in this, please write to Nina Sostaric firstname.lastname@example.org or if you already have a Slack account go to: https://ubiresearch.slack.com/signup
We run entirely with the dedicated work of volunteers, but we still need money to keep things going. Please contribute on our donation page.
UBI-Europe is not funded by any organisation, government or charity. Even with the dedicated work of many volunteers across Europe, it takes money to keep our network growing, get the word out and develop new projects. Your donation, however big or small, will make a huge difference towards making unconditional basic income a reality for all in Europe - and beyond.
