Lots of interest in Universal Basic Income (UBI) but perhaps not its time yet?

Within 10 days of us announcing  a ‘learn in’ about UBI 60 people signed up for it! The learn in was hosted by Steady State Manchester and the Social Change and Community Wellbeing Research Group at MMU  on September 8th . People came from all sorts of organisations  (or from none) and with different background knowledge and personal stakes in something like UBI Nicola Waterworth, @nicwaterworth, a participant, wrote a great blog sharing what she got out of it and see our report for details of what emerged from it. Matthew Taylor from the Royal Society of Arts, who are strong advocates, has made some interesting points about the need to build support before introducing policy if it is to succeed. We are planning further events, so please let us know if you would like to be involved.
