Conversation Toolkit

A basic income would go to everyone, so everyone should have their say in what it looks like.

We want to spark a wave of Basic Income Conversations right across the country, embedding the idea into public consciousness.

Basic Income Conversations will spread the word about this big idea, taking basic income to thousands of people for the very first time. These Conversations are designed to increase people’s understanding and improve the quality of debate.

We've created the Basic Income Conversation Toolkit so you can lead the Conversation.


The Basic Income Conversation Toolkit

The Toolkit talks you through the step by step process of bringing people together for a Basic Income Conversation.

It includes template agendas, resources, tips and guides - everything you need to host a Conversation!


What is a Basic Income Conversation?

A Basic Income Conversation is a structured discussion that helps you deepen your understanding of basic income and look at its potential impacts. They are led by your stories - of why we need basic income, what we’d do with it and what impact it would have on our communities. Our Toolkit to helps you lead the Conversation.

Why Conversations?

Basic Income Conversations are a chance for you to take action and become leaders. By hosting Conversations you will bring new people into our movement, as it grows and diversifies.

Basic Income Conversations give people the opportunity to share their stories and have their voices heard. We believe that lived experience is the most important evidence to consider in the move towards a basic income, you're helping us gather that evidence.

Everyone is welcome to join in the Basic Income Conversation. You don't have to be an expert or even support the idea, as long as you're approaching the Conversation with respect and an open mind your contribution is valuable.

Together, Conversations will help us build the power we need to compel decision makers to enact a basic income for all.


Why now?

The end of lockdown is now in sight but it’s vital that we don’t just go ‘back to normal’. It is now time to talk about how we rebuild our country.

Together we’ve managed to put basic income on the agenda at every turn these few years. More people and politicians are talking about basic income than ever before.

But the government is yet to be convinced and there are still millions of people who have never heard of the idea. It shows we still have work to do.

It’s now time to scale up the national Basic Income Conversation, one Conversation at a time.
