Our call for academic contributors is now open!

Applications for our open call for academic contributors are now open. If you are a forward-thinking researcher who is willing to work towards a more inclusive and circular world, join us!

C.UBI was launched at the Disruptive Innovation Festival.
Watch the talk below.

This is C.UBI


An initiative that proposes a preliminary framework to finance a universal basic income (UBI) within the context of the circular economy which we believe will be enabled by a slew of new and developing technology. 

We believe our world’s socio economic structure is in need of a re-design and C.UBI aims to contribute to this. Utilising the tools and methods of (human-centred) design, we are setting out to create a framework that:

  1. focuses on re-distribution of resources and the wealth derived thereof
  2. helps establish a circular economy and full supply chain transparency
  3. creates a structure to introduce and finance basic income

We believe these three components - when combined - can create a framework that is going to help bridge the changes we are facing in terms of the shifting sociological and economic reality. The ultimate goal is for this framework to be adopted and integrated by businesses and governments across the world. Before this happens we will be partnering with people in the academic, business and policy fields to create a rigorous framework that is flexible and modular in order for its value to be maximised in different geographies with different demographic realities.
