Rethinking work and income

Event
Date: Tuesday, 20 June 2017 18:00

Venue: The Red House, Plymouth School of Creative Arts

We’re delighted to be supporting the RSA with their work investigating how social enterprises can help build a sustainable and inclusive economy.  Their first event will explore the idea of a ‘basic Income’ and how this relates to challenges in the South West – more details below.  

The event is free, but you need to register via Eventbrite

The RSA’s report on Basic Income argues that a Basic Income for the UK - and elsewhere - would be feasible, desirable, and beneficial.  Anthony Painter, RSA Director of the Action Research Centre, will be give an overview of the up-to-date work in this area. He will be in conversation with RIO’s Ed Whitelaw FRSA to explore practical ways in which these issues can be taken forward.

Anthony is a successful author of many books including, 'Left without a future? Social Justice in anxious times' “Creative citizen, creative state: the principled and pragmatic case for a Universal Basic Income”. He regularly appears in national and international media and presents at high profile conferences. He has also worked in partnership with Google, the BBC, the BMA, the Education and Training Foundation, the Association of Colleges and the Metropolitan Police.

Michelle Virgo, one of the directors the of Plymouth Social Enterprise Network has written a blog which you may also find of interest
