Today 350 organisations including UBI Lab Leeds and the UK Network participated in the launch #BuildBackBetter.

The vast majority of people do not want to go back to the same old economy from before the crisis. Instead people want to build back stronger, greener and fairer.

So far the launch has been featured in the Mirror, the Guardian, The Times, the Express and Sky.

The statement clearly highlights the problems of our economic system which prevents a secure economic foundation and dignity for everyone in our society.  Unfortunately it does not tell us how the threats can be overcome and our hopes can be achieved, especially there is no mention of a Universal Basic Income. Hopefully this will be the next step.

Despite these weaknesses please ask your organisation, networks and friends to sign up to the site.

Please tweet the site. And here are some other tweets you can download and share.

You may also want to demand that UBI is included  in the next step so that we can build a good society for everyone.
