What would the country, or even the world, be like if every man, woman and child had a guaranteed minimum income? How could this possibly be organised and affordable?
The meeting is an opportunity to explore and discuss this important element of Green Party policy (see the policy on Economy in the Green Party Political Programme, paragraphs EC730–734 on Universal Basic Income).
Our speaker, Laura Bannister, was convenor of the Policy Working Group that drew up a costed model for a UBI that was accepted at the Green Party conference in Newport in 2019. She has since become Campaign Director of World Basic Income, which calls for a global redistribution of wealth. She lives in Manchester and has been a Green Party parliamentary candidate.
