General Assembly – we meet in Berlin, 21-24 March! 

Dear Basic Income Advocates,

As some of you already know our next European meeting will take place in Berlin21 - 24 March 2019.
We will welcome early arriving folks on Wednesday, 20 March at the monthly "Berlin Basic Income Beer" meeting, this time hopefully at a surprise new location. On Thursday evening we will organise a public debate "Basic Income Experiments – the road forward or a dead end?" At the General Assembly on Saturday we will elect a new UBIE board and discuss our priorities for the coming year. On Sunday, there will be workshops on our upcoming European Elections campaign and on the planned new European Citizens' Initiative.
We will announce more details of the meeting as soon as possible. If you plan to attend, please register here!
