Event 3: Meaningful work and its alternatives
Dr John Tomlinson will speak on Universal Basic Income. John has been writing about this topic since his doctoral thesis in 1989, and is a founder of Basic Income Guarantee Australia (BIGA,) an Australian university research web-site promoting a universal basic income guarantee.
Emma Kerin, National Union of Workers Media Communications Organiser, will speak on co-operative work and worker co-operatives, another alternative to work as it is currently understood.
We are experimenting with a more interactive and participatory format for this event. You will be seated in small groups around tables instead of lecture style. After an initial presentation by Dr John Tomlinson and Emma Kerin of about 20 minutes each, we will ask you and the people at your table to reflect on what you have heard and what you think about it. The night will finish with a plenary session where we can discuss, together with the speakers, meaningful work and its alternatives.
