The real challenges we face in society can often seem overwhelming, too big to even begin to tackle. The problems are usually very complex and deeply entwined with issues that affect people in many different ways, often requiring change on many levels. But we can break problems down, hold a common vision of what better looks like and together we can make a difference.
Over the last five years, the UBI Lab Network has grown from one small team of people in Sheffield UK to a network of 43 citizen led groups across the globe advocating for trials of Universal Basic Income.
With the support of over 600 elected representatives across the UK, the network has passed over 30 local government motions, triggered a pilot commitment by the Welsh Government and turned UBI into a mainstream policy proposition. But this is a global effort and we want to work with people in Finland!
Join us to hear the story so far, and learn about how we built an active and influential network that is able to start making a difference across a range of systemic problems and issues of collective concern.
Our hope is that in this session, together, we can begin creating action to form a UBI Lab in Finland, to join with other UBI advocates, and share learning to create effective action that is led by citizens.
We are keen to hear reflections from people or organisations involved in or aware of the UBI trial in Finland, or organisations actively working within social justice campaigns, be they of poverty, health, marginalisation, climate or democratic reform.
We believe one of the impacts a Universal Basic Income could have is increasing activism among citizens, increasing our collective impact and increasing the rate of change we desperately need to see across the world.
We want to have an open discussion about where the UBI Lab Network can be useful in a country that has learned so much about Universal Basic Income already.
As Margaret Mead once said: ”Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
