Basic income: freedom, security and Labour’s route back to power



We’re excited to be back at The World Transformed for 2022! Join Autonomy and the Basic Income Conversation for a snapshot into the contemporary universal basic income movement.

The European Network for the Fair Sharing of Working Time’s biannual conference will address the possibilities of a four-day week in Europe, and what real working time reduction could look like.

There will be three panel discussions. The first will look at best practice examples across Europe, with representatives sharing lessons learnt and practical strategies towards achieving working time reduction. The second will consider the ambiguities of a four-day week, understanding risks such as compressed hours and threats from objectors. The third panel will look at what actions trade unions are taking in the fight for working time reduction in Europe, with representatives from unions in France, Switzerland and Germany.
