The voice for global solutions in parliament

Welcome to Simpol's UK campaign!

Simpol invites citizens around the world to use their votes in a powerful new way to encourage governments to cooperate to solve global problems - problems like global warming, financial market regulation, environmental destruction, war, and social injustice.

Cooperation among governments is essential because these problems cross national boundaries, and because competition to attract investment and jobs means that any government that moved first would make its economy uncompetitive, leading to inflation, unemployment, or even economic collapse. To solve global problems, governments must act together. If all governments act together, simultaneously, everyone wins. But while they fail to cooperate, it's the markets that continue to run politics - not we, the people.

By supporting Simpol you are driving governments to cooperate. You are telling politicians that you’ll be giving strong voting preference at all future national elections to politicians who have signed the Simpol Pledge to the probable exclusion of those who haven’t.

With many parliamentary seats, and even entire elections, hanging on a relatively low number of votes, even a relatively small block of Simpol supporters can make it in the vital interests of politicians to sign the Pledge – a process leading to the implementation of a range of measures to solve global problems.

This is the simple mechanism Simpol supporters use to advance the cause of global justice. It's the simple mechanism we're using to take politics back. And it works. Thanks to our supporters, Opens internal link in current windowthese politicians already support the campaign.

So, please act now by signing the Simpol Petition

Simpol's approach is peaceful, open, democratic, and it's free. By supporting Simpol, you gain the opportunity to

  • contribute, if you wish, to the formulation of specific policies to solve global problems, and
  • you join with others to use your vote in a new and effective way to drive the politicians of all parties and countries to implement those policies.

By signing the Simpol Petition, you're make yourself a part of the global political solution!
