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 !

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
