UBI News: Federal popular initiative II and pilot experiment in Geneva

          Federal initiative, “Living in dignity - For an unconditional, financeable basic income”

Dear friend,

A new UBI initiative was launched in Bern on 21 September 2021. Its contents are essentially taken from the previous initiative, supplementing them with provisions to ensure the preservation of social insurance and financing that protects the middle classes. BIEN Switzerland supports the new initiative. Anyone wishing to participate in the campaign will find useful information at the foot of the page.


Happy reading!

Federal popular initiative UBI II

Press conference for the launch in Berne

Five years after the historic vote in Switzerland in 2016 for the introduction of an unconditional basic income, an independent committee launched a second popular initiative on 21 September 2021. The aim of the initiative, entitled "Living in dignity - For an unconditional, financeable basic income" èis to guarantee a means of subsistence for all people living in Switzerland, to realize the basic human right to lead a dignified and self-determined life, and to enable everyone to benefit fairly from the achievements of the national economy.
