opencollective-ubieUBIE is officially registered as an international non-profit organisation in Belgium. We are ready to take the idea of basic income to a new level, and you can help us do this.

Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE) advocates for the implementation of Basic Income in Europe. In 2013, we collected 300,000 signatures across all EU member countries for this cause, and our alliance grew out of this effort.

UBIE connects over 200 active members from 25 countries across the continent. They invest great amounts of their time, energy and money into organising regular meetings in cities all over Europe, developing projects to promote basic income and raising public awareness as well as support among decision makers. As a result, basic income is now on the agenda in the policy debates of many European countries.

With your help, we can strengthen our financial foundation in order to professionalise our work and accelerate the UBI journey. With Open Collective we can transparently show how your contributions make a difference.’

We want a better society and we believe unconditional basic income is a tool that can help reach this goal if used properly. Help us to push this kind of UBI to the next level !

All donations will be gratefully accepted, from small to large.
