As part of the Integral Cinema Project’s Research Partnership outreach application process, we are working with the International Simultaneous Policy Organization (ISPO) to help them develop an integrally-informed cinematic work to inspire an awareness for the need for Binding Global Governance across different cultures and structures of consciousness to more successfully address major global problems like climate change and global financial instabilities.
The International Simultaneous Policy Organization (ISPO) is a voluntary organization that promotes the Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) campaign. The ISPO is a growing association of citizens world-wide who aim to use their votes in a new, coordinated and effective way to drive all nations to co-operate in solving our planetary crisis. It believes that transnational citizen action is vital because "global markets and multinational corporations so comprehensively overpower individual nations that no politician dares make the first move to solve global problems for fear of competitive disadvantage." ISPO aims to overcomes this paralysis by bringing all nations to adopt in principle - and then to simultaneously implement - the Simultaneous Policy (Simpol), a range of democratically formulated regulations to bring about economic justice, environmental security and peace around the world in a way the recognizes and honors all interests. By supporting Simpol, ISPO's citizen-members pledge to vote in future elections for ANY political party or candidate - within reason - that has signed a pledge to implement Simpol's range of measures only when all or sufficient other governments have also signed. ISPO argues that, as more and more citizens act in this way, politicians will have no choice but to sign the Pledge if they wish to remain in office, or else they risk losing their seats to other politicians who have adopted it. Individuals and politicians who have adopted ISPO's simultaneous policy have come from all parts of the political spectrum and the Simultaneous Policy presently has campaigns running in twenty seven countries.
