After one year of campaigning for the European Citizens’
Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income, we are still actively
continuing on the path towards finding an intelligent approach to
European citizens’ real needs, particularly those generated by poverty.
The Initiative won the support of over 300,000 people in less than a

Since then, a network involving people and organisations from 25 countries has come together to carry on the Initiative’s aims.

At this conference we would like to consolidate this network by
reflecting both on what has happened in the past year and on our future

Our main aim is for unconditional basic income to be implemented
throughout the EU. There are also moves underway to get UBI recognised
as a human right under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights (Article 1:
Human Dignity).

We hope that you will be able to attend our conference on 10 April
2014, and actively participate in the discussion of ideas which will be
presented there. We would be grateful if we could receive your
confirmation by April 7th, 5PM.
