It’s Time to Get BIG! The Stats, The Stories, The Steps.
2022 is a BIG year! The only annual basic income conference in North America is getting a new name: The BIG Conference, or The Basic Income Guarantee Conference. It is also the 20th anniversary of this amazing event. The conference will be held from June 23-25, 2022.
The first two days will take place live and in-person in Portland, Oregon, with all sessions livestreamed or recorded. The third conference day will be fully virtual with all sessions livestreamed, in partnership with key Canadian organizations.
The BIG Conference brings together researchers, activists, thought leaders, artists, and policymakers to focus their collective expertise, experiences, and energies, to move the vision of a basic income forward. With over 80 guaranteed income pilot programs being implemented across the country, the past year has seen an explosion in pilot data and best practices, as well as a wealth of storytelling, community engagement, and advocacy efforts.
