People-Centred Global Governance - Newly updated version now online
A newly updated version of the book, People-Centred Global Governance - Making it Happen!, is now available for free download from Simpol's global website.
"A systemic and ingenious strategy for applying people power in all countries to encourage their politicians toward ‘win-win global solutions’.”
Author, Building a Win-Win World and Planetary Citizenship
“Simultaneous Policy (SP) is an evolutionary imperative in a competitive world that now demands new forms of co-operation in order to address global issues that cannot be resolved by one nation alone. In this new book John Bunzl analyses some key aspects of governance and sets SP in the context of transformative evolutionary change in our economic and political systems. The book is a timely contribution to continuing debates about structures and processes of global governance, showing exactly why our current international institutions are not fit for purpose.”
Editor, Network, the magazine of the Scientific & Medical Network
“In an age when our problems are global and national governance structures are weakened and inadequate, it is absolutely necessary to think about the shape of effective global governance. This cannot be simply national government "writ large" for that would also enlarge the problems and inefficiencies of national governance. It must be a holistic and evolutionary governance system, and to the articulation of the essential features of such a system John Bunzl's book makes a major contribution. Highly recommended reading for everyone concerned with our collective future on this small and largely mismanaged planet.”
Futurist, author and systems theorist. President of Club of Budapest
"John Bunzl convincingly demonstrates that if you want to contribute consciously to the successful advancement of the evolutionary process on this planet, you should support the Simultaneous Policy. The SP is a powerful and practical means of actualizing the next great step in evolution on earth - the formation of a cooperative and sustainable planetary civilization."
Author, Evolution’s Arrow – the direction of evolution and the future of humanity
"This publication presents a unique long term approach to governance and environmental issues. It offers solutions based on the concept of unity in diversity. As such it is bound to produce controversy and debate!"
Former President, The Schumacher Society
