On 26 March, an event on introducing Basic Income in Northern Ireland will be held as part of the Imagine Festival.

The event is organised by Basic Income NI – a local basic income (BI) advocacy group – and will focus on providing a strong case for the introduction of a BI in Northern Ireland, what it could achieve and a roadmap for how it could be implemented here.

The event will be co-ordinated by BINI members and will feature world-leading experts and local activists as speakers. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in group work sessions to discuss what impact a BI could have in NI.

The event will be held at 6pm on Tuesday 26 March and will be held in Room 02/026 at QUB’s Peter Froggatt Centre. Admission is free, but you are encouraged to secure your place by registering here. You can find out more information about the event by following the same link.

What is a Basic Income?

A basic income is a payment from the state to every resident on an individual basis, without any means test or work requirement. (Basic Income Ireland)
