The new ECI will aim to require the Commission to carry out follow up actions to promote an unconditional basic income for all within the EU, as a human right. EAPN participated in the planning meeting and will be debating with its members its role in supporting this initiative, in the context of the EAPN adequate minimum income campaign. A Citizen’s Committee is being set up, with national coordinators, together with an EU steering group which is finalizing the draft and preparing the presentation to the Commission and the organization of the campaign.
