What's the talk about?

Lewes SITP is proud to present a collaboration with the Depot Cinema:

Screening of the documentary Free Lunch Society, directed by Christian Tod

Globalisation, automation, Donald Trump. The middle class is falling apart. Time for a complete rethink. Just a few years ago, an unconditional basic income was considered a pipe dream. Today, this idea is more imaginable than ever before, and intense discussions are taking place in all political and scientific camps. Free Lunch Society provides the background to this idea and searches for explanations, possibilities and experiences regarding its implementation. An unconditional basic income means money for everyone - as a human right without service in return!

We'll then welcome Charlie Young to steer a debate about Universal Basic Income - is this an idea whose time has come?  

Charlie is a researcher and writer on themes of economics, basic income and climate change.  He is an associate of the RSA, contributing to their recent work on the subject of UBI.
