Up until now, there is still no answer to Destructive Global Competition. But with Simpol, there’s a way around it.
In a world where global problems can't be solved by any nation alone, the best way to tackle Climate Change, campaign for Tax Justice, or disarm the Nuclear Powers is to drive support for global solutions.
Read below for ways you can Join with Simpol and find out about our work where you are.
By becoming a Simpol supporter, you can take action for global solutions with the power of your vote.
By joining the Simpol campaign, you are telling politicians that you’ll be giving strong preference at all future elections to those who have signed the Pledge, to the probable exclusion of those who haven’t.
Whoever you decide to vote for in the end, your support for Simpol shows politicians that they'll be much more likely to get your vote if they sign the Pledge and much less likely to get it if they don't. That way, you still retain the ultimate right to vote as you please, but you encourage ALL the candidates to support Simpol, so making it more likely that your preferred candidate will be one of them.
So what are you waiting for? Become a Simpol supporter by clicking the button below.
Are you an MP? Or are you a candidate? As an aspiring or sitting political leader, you can show yourself to be supporting a solution to global problems while enhancing your chances of receiving the votes of Simpol supporters by signing the Simpol Pledge.

We believe no approach to campaigning on global problems is complete without taking Destructive Global Competition and the need for simultaneous implementation into account. Simpol at last provides campaigning NGOs with an answer to Destructive Global Competition and a tool for getting around it.

It's not just citizens who are suffering from climate change and other global problems. Increasingly, businesses are too.
Insurance costs to cover for flood, storm and terrorist damage are rising; the frequency of international tensions make the risk and cost of doing business higher – both at home and abroad. Businesses pay ever-higher costs for the security of their personnel, for risk assessments, green audits, etc, all in an unending bid to avoid reputational risk.
Increasingly it's also in the business interest to have a just and sustainable world.
The solution for all of us is Simpol.
Simpol doesn't accept donations from for-profit organisations. But there are plenty of other ways your business can support us.
Signing on to Simpol makes you a supporter of the campaign, joining you with thousands of others, in NZ and elsewhere, in the campaign to solve global problems. Being a supporter also allows you, when the time comes, to participate in developing the global policies that will make up Simpol's measures.
When you sign on to Simpol we'll inform your MP on your behalf and invite them to support the campaign. (If there's an election coming up, we'll inform all the candidates standing in your constituency).
But it's much more powerful if your MP hears from you directly. So please download this template letter and send it to them today. That way, your MP will know what s/he needs to do to gain your vote at the next election! You can find out who your MP is here.
Like you, your friends and family may be looking for a new, powerful way to re-engage with politics but in a non-party-political way that takes the whole world into account. So why not tell them about Simpol by sending them an email that directs them to this site? You can copy and paste this template text into your email. Please ask them to support Simpol too!

Global problems need immediate action. That's why it's important to carry on supporting your other favourite NGOs. But many NGO demands won't ever be fully implemented without global cooperation, which is why it's important you ask your NGOs to support Simpol. Please send them this template letter which invites them to partner with us.
We need help with all sorts of tasks and there are hundreds of ways to use your special talents to help the campaign. So if you want to give something back to the world and have a little regular spare time to offer, why not download and submit the Simpol Volunteer Form and tell us how you can help?
Being politically independent means our work relies purely on membership fees and on donations from private individuals. Any donation, large or small, once or on a regular basis, would be gratefully received. You can donate via PayPal. For larger donations, please contact us regarding the most tax efficient means of giving your support.
