Youth for Basic Income: BI Futures Thinking Workshop
Ever wondered what basic income is all about? Ever wish you had others to speak to about it? Join OCIC’s Youth Policy-Makers Hub for a series of conversations and workshops featuring a range of voices on this issue, to co-imagine how it could become a reality in Canada.
This Design Thinking Workshop is a continuation of the webinars series from June 11 to July 2, 2020. Building on the topics and knowledge, in this interactive virtual workshop, we will explore the futures and possibilities for Basic Income. Join the youth policy-makers to co-create and co-imagine a future where BI is a reality in Canada. Specifically, we will be focusing on the case for guaranteed liveable income and exploring questions like “What will such a shift mean for gender equality,” “What will such a shift mean for youth empowerment,” and “How will it support international cooperation and the efforts towards sustainable development?”
