UBIE is now 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.
We want a better society and we believe unconditionnal 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 !
Never before has this idea been so intensively discussed, and interest is growing throughout the world since a few years. 300,000 signatures were collected in Europe during an ECI; the Swiss referendum is due for the vote next year; several cities in the Netherlands are seriously looking into doing pilot studies; recent poll in France showed that basic income has massive (67%) support. And more good news comes in every day.
We want to go further, and be able to organise all the projects and events which so far are only in our minds. This takes money, so in order to do it, we need your help!
All donations will be gratefully accepted, from small to large.

Myths and facts about Unconditional Basic Income
What is Basic Income
An Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) is an income unconditionally granted to all members of a political community on an individual basis, without means test or work requirement. Unlike existing minimum income schemes in european countries, UBI is universal, individual, unconditional, and high enough to ensure an existence in dignity and participation in society.
What is UBIE
Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE) is a network of organisations and individuals who have different cultures, languages, social interests and political and religious or philosophical background, but sharing the common view presented here that a Unconditional Basic Income is a sustainable a long term solution for our societies.
Therefore we work together to promote the idea of a unconditional basic income until we get its implementation everywhere in Europe, and its recognition as a Universal Human Right. UBIE connects activists from 25 European countries. We organise events, coordinate campaigns to push the unconditional basic income.
UBIE stems from a European Citizens’ Initiative which started in April 2012 and ended in january 2014 after having collected more than 300,000 signatures in the European Union. The organisers of the initiative decided to move one step further by establishing an official network and pursue our goal to get the basic income implemented everywhere in Europe
