Guest Biography


John Bunzl is a global political activist and businessman with a new and compelling vision for citizen-driven global cooperation.

In 1998 the idea for Simultaneous Policy occurred to him as a potential means for removing the barriers which prevent many of today’s global problems from being solved. In 2000 he founded the International Simultaneous Policy Organization (ISPO) and launched the Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) campaign. In 2001, he set out the campaign in his first book of the same name. The Simpol campaign has since steadily been gathering increasing attention, recognition and support amongst citizens, activists, non-governmental organizations, politicians, business people and many others.

In 2003 he co-authored his second book, Monetary Reform – Making it Happen!, written with the prominent monetary reformer, James Robertson. In 2009 he authored a third book, People-centred Global Governance – Making it Happen!  In 2017, John co-authored The Simpol Solution – Solving global problems could be easier than we think, together with Nick Duffell. A number of John’s articles on global governance have been published by the Journal of Integral Theory & Practice, including Solving Climate Change – Achieving a Noospheric Agreement (2009), Discovering an Integral Civic Consciousness in a Global Age (2012), and Transcending First-tier Values in Achieving Binding Global Governance (2012).

He has lectured widely, including to The Schumacher Society, The World Trade Organization, The Lucis Trust and at various universities around the world.
