Our chance to end poverty

Our chance to end poverty
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

It’s infuriating -- the world has never been wealthier but the gap between rich and poor is growing every day. But there is a way out: it’s called Unconditional Basic Income and experts say it can completely eradicate poverty!

Throughout the years, many Nobel Prize-winning economists have proposed this form of social security as the answer to poverty and societal problems such as soaring healthcare costs. Politicians are afraid to speak out because it’s often misunderstood, but EU citizens have decided to challenge this with a call for more research on this promising, unique and bold solution!

When 1 million of us show our support, we will deliver this petition to the European Commission with the demand that it acts on resolutions concerning basic income that were already adopted by the EU Parliament in 2010. Sign here and share it with all your friends and family to make sure that our politicians can no longer ignore this solution to poverty.


PS - Over 285.000 signatures have already been collected in an official EU petition that has now been closed (the ECI-UBI). Let’s continue the effort!
