Humanothon is a human, world, change-aware ‘marathon’ – a thematic movement – for sense making and building shared understanding. 

Date: 1st Feb 2024 

Time: 5 PM Helsinki  | 3 PM London | 4 PM Paris | 10 AM NYC

Duration: 2 hours

UBI Lab Finland leads session 5 on the theme of UBI.  We started to build understanding on the many perspectives and possibilities of UBI (Universal Basic Income), and to bring the fragmented, siloed, isolated thinking and experiences shared in the many social environments in the Hunome ‘social 4.0’ platform. 

We now invite you to join in this build into a global sense-making session and into the Hunome SparkMap.

Status of the Build – Ongoing  

The need to collect much more insights for UBI for general awareness for it to be more widely known and clearly explained was also, yet again, highlighted. People have too many wrong ideas and misconceptions about it, or even complete lack of knowledge of it). In order to convince any party or government clear numbers and  concrete economic calculations are needed to show how this new country wide economical model would be able to survive and sustain itself. Filmmakers and artists in other fields of art could also help tell the story of UBI  in new and compelling ways. There now also is a map of various UBI groups around the world to link with other people focusing or related with UBI – you are invited to bring information about various UBI groups around the world there.

This session 5 coming on Feb 1st 2024, aims to bring more stakeholders with different skill sets into the Humanothon process and the SparkMap. We are encouraging the field experts and enthusiasts to join this fourth Humanothon session to continue to build common understanding on UBI and its way forward.

Brief Introduction to collaborative sensemaking on UBI:  Could the introduction of UBI – significantly reduce poverty and act to address lack of equality? – reducing the complexity and cost of the welfare state? – allow people to contribute to their community and amplify participatory, deliberative and representative forms of democracy?

UBI is not a simple theme / phenomenon, there are many perspectives to consider.  How can we help decision makers to understand and make great decisions on UBI? What are some great examples of experiments and innovative thinking around the world? What impact might UBI make? How would ‘installing’ UBI change people’s lives and societies? What about the global picture, what varies? What might be the root causes of the changes? Did we get those right or did convenience and supposed wishes take us in the wrong direction, without deep enough understanding? And what can be the unintended consequencesr? What’s next?

We are inviting you to deliberate and build forward the exciting SparkMap titled “UBI, Universal Basic Income”. It brings together – a systemic view to the theme – connecting the dots – the various perspectives surrounding UBI, the changes and impact, what is changing now, what are examples from around the world, what innovations, what possibilities for improvements, how are humans around the world experiencing the experiments and ideas put forward.
You can also login to explore and add your perspectives to the UBI SparkMap beforehand after the session. 

Join us to contribute your knowledge, experiences and thoughts to this discussion. We are eager to have your thoughts on UBI – what’s next: why this is so important, what impact it could have, the history of it to understand its evolution and more as part of our shared multidisciplinary understanding. Let’s learn from each other across countries and build shared understanding around UBI globally and locally with the atomic community in Hunome!

About Hunome

Hunome is a product uniquely designed for building multidimensional understanding.

This is the place for thinking and building knowledge together or solo. A home for the curious and sense makers. 

A SparkMap is a non-linear, evolving and multi-dimensional map of understanding on a theme. SparkMap is a great way to visualize the understanding that a group of people have on a particular theme.

About Humanothon

Humanothon is a movement or a set of thematic movements run on the Hunome product. You can take leadership on a theme that needs multidimensional understanding and that you want to build a concerted systematic mapping on, with a group. Hunome product is there to use and our team helps the leads set this up providing materials and other help.

You do not need to run a Humanothon to build multidimensional understanding on Hunome. You can also just start by clicking on ‘New SparkMap’ once inside Hunome and craft your own understanding and see others join.Feb
