Making Basic Income a European Reality – Seminar video


This is a recording of the seminar Making Basic Income a European Reality, held at the 30th EGP Council in Tampere, Finland on the 8th November of 2019. The seminar was organized in cooperation by the Finnish green think tank Visio and the Green European Foundation, GEF.


The long lived dream of a basic income has gained relevance in Europe in the last few years. Changing working life and an uncertain economy has sparked the need for social security reforms in many countries. The Finnish basic income study has received world wide coverage. The goals have long been established but how do countries move forward to make it actually happen? Is an European BI possible? Should we approach BI incrementally?
