Learning Community: Guaranteed Livable Income

Learning Community
Fair Vote presentation at the Proportional Representation Learning Community (at Seven Shores)The second Waterloo Green Party Learning Community will kick off on Sunday June 5th at Seven Shores Urban Market & Cafe in Waterloo.

Proportional Representation was the topic we explored in the first Green Learning Community series hosted by the Green Party of Waterloo’s Kris Braun and Bryan Izzard.

Recently you’ve likely heard of Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI), sometimes called Basic Income, which was implemented in a Western town as a pilot program called  “Mincome” in the 1970’s.  Since the GLI is an important Green Party policy plank, this is a good opportunity to figure out what this radical social policy is all about.  As a learning community, we’ll set our own direction and investigate with open minds. Our series will likely have three sessions, but you’re welcome to come to any even if you miss others.

Our first session will feature a presentation from John Green from Basic Income Waterloo Region and brainstorming on what we’d like to learn for our next session.
