In a time of both great prosperity and growth of the wage gap some think it is time for a change, to create more social justice by introducing the Universal Basic Income (UBI). But what is UBI? And could it be a solution?
UBI can be seen as the government paying a basic income to its citizens without asking anything in return. Many questions arise when this topic is brought up, such as: who will pay for this? Will it change anything? Won’t people stop working?
These questions will all be answered throughout the upcoming inspiration session on 7 October. X-Honours student Zalia Omar will tell us about UBI and lead the inspiration session.
Goal of the session
The attendees of this session will get a short introduction of what the UBI is, what models exists, what the outcomes of experiments were and what positive and negative aspects can be identified. This information from a neutral perspective will provide the basis for a discussion on the topic and forming or enriching your opinion. The interactive session will be online. Be prepared to share your thoughts and opinions!
All students and staff from NHL Stenden are welcome to join this session. It will be casted in Blackboard Collaborate, starting at 14.30 hrs. You can ‘walk in’ 15 minutes earlier and have a chat if you like.
