Scotland 2030: A Citizen’s Income?

Tuesday 2 April, 6pm to 7.30pm, at the Scottish Parliament.

With predictions of social and economic upheaval brought about by technological and environmental changes, could a citizen’s income reduce poverty and increase people’s control over their lives? How attractive – and affordable – is it as a policy?

Using new research from Edinburgh and Heriott-Watt Universities, funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute, this seminar will bring together perspectives from all sides of the debate to consider whether citizen’s income is a realistic solution for the future.
