Join us at 10 am Pacific on Sunday, May 13th, for “A New Global Activism,” with John Bunzl.
It’s often said that the world’s problems will be solved only when there is sufficient political will. And as citizens, we naturally expect our politicians to manifest this political will. But today’s global problems transcend national borders and require governments to act together. However, instead of co-operating, governments are predictably more concerned with competing with each other to keep their national economies ‘internationally competitive.’ But this is a vicious circle; a game no nation can win and one we all will ultimately lose.
John Bunzl has engaged in a full-hearted, committed exploration of how to transcend this destructive cycle. This has been a journey into expanded consciousness as well as a journey into committed activism
He and I will be discussing the globally-oriented, highly creative model of political engagement that he and his organization Simpol offer as a solution to such questions as: how can we, as citizens, drive our governments to cooperate to solve global problems? How can we go beyond protest, lobbying and email petitions to embrace a new, powerful and effective form of global political activism? How can we reengage with national electoral politics in a completely new, integral way that’s non-partisan, politically effective, and takes the whole world into account?
The Simpol model relies on citizen empowerment and accountability as a way to detach from the blame game and generate an upward momentum which will drive global powers to cooperate. According to Simpol and its supporters, only “…by implementing policies simultaneously can our problems be resolved in a way that no nation, corporation, or citizen loses out. If all nations act together, everybody wins.”
