Catalonia’s UBI pilot scheme: The view from the engine room.
The Government of Catalonia is planning to pilot a universal basic income scheme. The scheme will be launched in the first half of next year and will run for two years. About 5,000 people chosen randomly from various locations will participate.
Aida, who works at the Office of the Pilot Plan to Implement Universal Basic Income as a data analyst, regularly contributes to public debates about universal basic income. In this interview she will talk about the reasoning behind this initiative, how that reasoning has influenced its design and explain in what way this scheme differs from previous universal basic income pilot schemes.
