Rezonance présente une soirée First: RBI et le travail dans tous ses états

Le peuple suisse votera sur le RBI, le Revenu de Base Inconditionnel (RBI) le 5 juin prochain. Cette innovation sociale est en voie d’expérimentation en Finlande et aux Pays-Bas. Ce n'est qu'une des innovations qui bouillonnent et secoue la société civile.

An unconditional basic income is a logical response to how the economy is evolving

Ralph Kundig face

Ralph Kundig – Published on Friday, February 5th, 2016 on LeTemps.ch (FR)

An unconditional basic income (UBI) for everyone, the subject of a popular vote in Switzerland on 5 June 2016, is - according to Ralph Kundig - the logical response to developments in the economy. These imply less and less connection between employment and the economy, and consequently between employment and the social safety net. Ralph is the president of BIEN-Switzerland, the association fighting to introduce an UBI in Switzerland

Big data, learning machines, digitization, open source: all are developments which threaten jobs, even highly qualified ones. Unemployment is rising and social security costs are mushrooming, with fewer and fewer workers to pay for it and feeble economic growth. The way things are going means that neither the economy nor social security can any longer remain dependent on employment.

We are already seeing that salaries no longer bear much relation to the usefulness of the work done. The proportion of the population whose revenue is derived from work is a mere 40%; all the others accomplish tasks which are equally necessary to value creation but are unpaid, such as caring for family, learning, volunteer work or art and culture. In the 21st century, the concept of paid work as the sole source of income, social integration and human value creation has become obsolete.

It's official: we'll vote on June 5th 2016

On January 27th 2016, the Swiss government announced on which initiatives we'll vote on June 5th 2016, and one them will be about the unconditional basic income. The campaign has thus officially begun!


Our networks are organizing and are constantly gaining new enthusiastic members, who want to be a part of the historic vote. Our funds, which are necessary to finance the campaign, are also growing thanks to your support. Small, like the 5 CHF/month by Duccio or big, like the 10'000 CHF by Clément, every donation counts! It's small streams that give birth to big rivers.

It's hard to say whether the referendum will be a success or not, as too many people have never heard of unconditional basic income. They are very vulnerable to the misinformation of its detractors. Our goal is that people get objective information. For this, everybody can help: talk about it, send an information mail to your friends, share our Facebook posts and invite your friends to like our page. You can also take part in our actions and participate in the campaign funding. [+]

RTS puts the spotlight on basic income

At 19.30 on Tuesday, 15 December

We were treated to a beautiful subject on the basis of income at 19.30, with explanations, graphics and testimonials. We celebrate and we send a very big thank you to Magali Rochat and Darius Rochebin (movie in French):

We wish to clarify, however, that the unconditional basic income does not completely replace the UI, contrary to what was said.

At 12.45 on Friday, December 18th

Martina Chyba, head of the section society and culture of RTS, and convinced of the basic income, opposite Elisabeth Eckert, Head of the Economics Section Matin Dimanche (movie in French):
