Do you want to say:
You have to work for money to be able to live.
Or do you want to say:
You get money to live, to be able to work.
No. But it’s possible!
At some point somebody had to stand up and say:
Let’s create a retirement pension.
I can imagine that quite a few people were against this idea at the time.
Adults without income (for ex. housewives and
-men) will get
Children under 18 will get 625 CHF.
The experiment will be planned in detail together with the village, it's residents and experts.
As soon as the village is found I know how much money needs to be organized to start the experiment.
Trying out things results in valuable insights that cannot be achieved with "just talking"!
Testing the basic income in a village makes sense to me because with the population mix, the structures and laws it’s a miniature country. In addition, democratic decisions are possible.
If you think your village is the RIGHT one for the experiment, then get in touch, even if the following conditions do not fit:
Number of residents Between 150 - 1000 people (Workers, retired people, families, singles, etc.)
I grew up in capitalism, worked 100% for a long time and saved for my pension. In the last 10 years, however, I changed my life because I was fed up cursing Mondays and saving money for a future I might not even live to see.
My name is Rebecca Panian. I am a filmmaker. Together with the film company Catpics AG I’m working on a documentary about the basic income.
We are planning on filming the experiment as part of the project.
if you think your village or your community
is perfect for the experiment.
Let's meet and figure out how we can realize it - together!
Your voice counts!
