DEBATE

Basic Income and the future of work

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

DATE TO BE CONFIRMED, TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON! Stay tuned!

With a basic income, will work become play?

Universal basic income is an old idea that is now regaining a new life as technology disrupts the way we live and work. Robotisation and AI advance apace and in a not so distant future we might all be recipients of a universal basic income. Pilot projects around the world are testing the waters to see how this could work in practice. But how will a basic income affect the way we understand, value and do work? In changing the conventional job market and allowing people potentially to take up more creative endeavours, will it benefit society and improve work-life balance, or act to its detriment in harming economic productivity? The reality of a basic income pushes us to rethink our very idea of work. Do we work for necessity, duty, habit, identity or fulfilment? And if work becomes a choice rather than a necessity how will we find meaning in our lives and fill our days if we need to work less, or not at all? Join the debate with some of the most compelling thinkers on the issue.
