Breaking down the barriers to solving world problems
 

Welcome to Simpol's U.S. campaign!

Have you ever wondered why governments seem unable to solve global problems like climate change, wealth inequality and mass migration?

But have you ever considered that it’s not that governments don’t want to act on these problems, but that they can't? Their need to keep their national economies attractive to international capital and investors makes it impossible for them to prioritize society or the environment, so things only get worse.

What if you could help release governments from competing for capital so they could cooperate for our future? What if you could be part of a global movement that allows us to use our votes in a completely new way to drive governments to cooperate?

Welcome to Simpol – the international citizens campaign to solve global problems!

Simpol is short for the Simultaneous Policy – a range of policies to solve global problems at the same time, on the same date, so all nations win. With Simpol, you can contribute to those policies and drive governments to implement them.

Signing on to Simpol is like globalizing the power of your vote. As a Simpol supporter, your vote isn’t just a national one – it also sends a powerful signal to politicians that they need to support the Simpol campaign. If they don't, they risk losing your vote to a competing candidate who does. The campaign is already underway, supported by these politicians.

So what are you waiting for? Sign on to Simpol now to globalize your vote, and Opens internal link in current windowread why Simpol may be the one thing that could solve the urgent global problems we all face.

The Green New Deal - A Sign of Hope?

Dear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – No single nation can implement a successful Green New Deal because climate change is a global problem, as is immigration and wealth inequity and all global problems face a single barrier which it is impossible for one nation to overcome.

The solutions lie in cooperative effort. Bridges are needed, not walls!

New book: The Simpol Solution

John Bunzl and Nick Duffell's new book, The Simpol Solution, is due out in the U.S. and Canada in Spring 2018 from Prometheus Books.

It explains why our efforts to deal with global problems are failing, and proposes new ways of thinking to help us tackle them. Blending politics and psychology, it shows us why we must all come to terms with the crippling effect of global competition and how through new thinking and simultaneous cooperative action we can overcome the problems we face today and tomorrow.

“It’s ambitious and provocative. Can it work? Certainly worth a serious try.” - Noam Chomsky
