The next meeting of the Basic Income Ireland network will take place on Wednesday April 2nd at 6.30pm in DIT Aungier St, Dublin. Room 3-029. All welcome. We plan to attend briefly to some organisational issues and then to have a discussion about BI and pensions.
Members of the Basic Income Ireland network will participate in a public event about basic income at the Public Library in Celbridge, Co Kildare, at 2pm on Saturday Nov 23rd.
The event will begin with a short presentation about the fundamentals of basic income and there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
The event is being hosted jointly by Cultivate Celbridge and Transition Town Maynooth.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
The library is just off the main street (turn at AIB) and the bus from Dublin city centre is the number 67.
Our next Basic Income Ireland general network meeting will take place at the Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2 on Thursday May, 2nd from 6.30 to 8.30pm. The general theme of the meeting will be 'spreading the word' about basic income.
Everyone is welcome to attend. We try to run the network meetings in an inclusive and participative fashion so that everyone who attends can contribute (if they wish!) At this stage, as we are turning attention to spreading the word about basic income, it would be helpful if attendees can turn up with a working knowledge of the material on this website. This will prevent us having to spend too much time discussing the fundamental principles of basic income (thereby allowing us to really focus on creative ideas and input). That said, we are always open to creating opportunities for discussing 'advanced' issues and questions surrounding the topic.
Any questions? Drop us a line and we'll be happy to help...
In the meantime, don't forget to sign the EU Citizens' Initiative petition calling for an investigation of basic income, and please encourage others to sign it also. Click here to sign the petition now.

About thirty people attended the Basic Income Ireland website launch and participatory event at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, on March 7th, 2013.
We briefly introduced the concept of basic income, how it can be paid for and what the Basic Income Ireland network hopes to achieve.
