Breaking down the barriers to solving world problems

Welcome to Simpol's Irish 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 prioritise 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 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 the Simpol Petition is like doubling 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 – or risk losing you altogether. The campaign is already underway, supported by these politicians.

So what are you waiting for? Sign on to Simpol now to double your vote, and read why Simpol may be the one thing that could solve the urgent global problems we all face.

When will we finally take globalization seriously?

First Brexit, now Trump. It's happening because, as Simpol's founder John Bunzl explains in this new HuffPost article, we are still not taking globalisation seriously. But can the more protectionist world offered by populist politicians be a real alternative?

New book: The Simpol Solution

John Bunzl and Nick Duffell's new book, The Simpol Solution, is due out January 2017.

The book explains why our efforts to deal with global problems are failing, and proposes new ways of thinking to help us tackle them.

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