However, as many enthusiasts support the concept, as many critical voices point out possible problems regarding the actual implementation of UBI. We wonder: how realistic is UBI as an option to create a more sustainable society? 

To get an answer to this question, experts (such as Philippe van Parijs) from different fields are presented and discussed their standpoints regarding UBI and sustainability. Topics such as economy, climate politics, sustainability, justice, as well as social and political sciences were addressed. 

This event was organized in collaboration with the Green Office from the Bucerius Law School.
