In his recent book "Let Us Dream" Pope Francis advocated the idea of a Universal Basic Income, which could help ensure the poorest in society would not get left behind and enable everyone to flourish together. We have organised an event to help us explore the idea and the arguments around it, both for and against. A number of experts will be helping us, including Dr. Anna Rowlands, Professor Fred Robinson and Austen Ivereigh, who worked with Pope Francis to write Let Us Dream. We will also be joined by people who have direct experience of poverty and those who work to support them. The event is taking place on Saturday 16th October, 11am to 1.30pm via Zoom. If you would like to register or have any questions, please contact
