Earth4All in Austria: Inequality turnaround

On March 5, 2024, the University of Salzburg will host, in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg, the Mozarteum University and the UniNEtZ project, our “Inequality” turnaround event. Under the title “The Inequality turnaround: Sharing Dividends”, the report describes the problems of economic inequality, the policies that would lead to a Giant Leap towards more equality, as well as hurdles and obstacles along the way.

The inequality turnaround is based on three fundamental policies that enable a continuous development towards a new economic paradigm:

  • a stronger tax progression on income and wealth
  • strengthening workers’ rights and promoting trade union bargaining power;
  • “safety nets” and “innovation nets” to distribute wealth more evenly and secure it in a time of profound change (for example, comprehensive concepts such as a universal basic income/dividend).

As with our first two events on the energy and food turnarounds, we will discuss this topic with experts, stakeholders and practitioners after a high-level keynote speech from the international Club of Rome.


Welcome: Dr. Meike Bukowski & Dr. Friedrich Hinterberger (University of Salzburg)
