The world's biggest question in Geneva on May 14th

Plainpalais google map

“ What would you work, if your income were take care of? ”. That's the world's biggest question written on the world's biggest poster, exposed at the plainpalais in Geneva, the biggest public square in a Swiss city and the next big thing by the basic income militants.

Financed through crowdfunding and built in the canton of Glaris, this gigantic poster will be registered in the Guinness Book of World Records: 110m by 80m, 8000m^2 - the size of a soccer field, for a weight of 7.5 tons. The question on basic income will therefore take the same dimension as the poster itself: the world's biggest, in a tangible way.

A basic income pilot in Lausanne!

Panorama of Lausanne

The Communal Council of Lausanne accepted this postulate of our friend, activist and member of the Council, Laurent Rebeaud Greens Vaud. The Municipality will have to consider implementing a basic income pilot project, that will allow to test this idea. Léonore Porchet brilliantly defended this postulate in front of the Communal Council and made her voice heard. The experiment is excpected to be conducted on a sample of people which already receive State assistance. Similar experiments are expected in other countries like the Netherlands and Finland.
