Whistleblowers and Journalists

Responsible for the dissemination of truth and the exposure of corruption and fraud, we rely on whistleblowers and journalists to create a more informed and engaged society. They form an essential part of upholding democracy, protecting our rights, and exposing government and corporate wrongdoings - often at great risk to their own safety, livelihoods and freedom.

Find excellent guides to the work of Julian Assange and his Wikileaks project, Edward Snowden, Frances Haugen, Brittany Kaiser, Daniel Hale, and Chelsea Manning. We have also collated links and resources for whistleblowers, including information on secure drop, and attempts by governments to supress their findings.

Never before has access to unbiased and truthful news been so important. The global threat to journalists is at its highest level as they continue to face intimidation, internet censorship, political pressure, imprisonment, and even death.

From 2016 to the end of 2020, UNESCO recorded 400 killings of journalists. Just as concerning is the global rate of impunity for these murders. Nine times out of ten, the case remains unresolved creating a continued cycle of violence. Press freedom is a major pillar to democratic societies – journalists must not be silenced.

Our unique directory on journalism highlights the work of the world's most influential broadcasters, investigative journalists, and foreign correspondents. Learn more about the work of people such as Glenn Greenwald, Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman, Anna Politkovskaya, Shireen Abu Akleh, and Abby Martin.

Role Models for Peace

Peace activists, anti-war campaigners, nonviolence advocates, conscientious objectors, war resistors, peace educators, and influential voices for peace are essential in forming a world which is democratic, just, stable, safe, and free from corruption, oppression, and war profiteering.

As we have seen time and time again, war never brings peace, only suffering, destruction, and death. Despite the proven success of peaceful solutions in ending and preventing violence,

"The world is over-armed and peace is under-funded," Ban Ki-Moon.

For example, the U.S military budget for 2021 was $801 billion, with over one million people in active military duty. Whereas the U.S budget for the Peace Corps was $508 million. This accounts for less than 1% of the foreign operations budget.

We are committed to the peace movement, and all those who support a peace first approach. By highlighting the work of people such as Nelson Mandela, Albert Schweitzer, Bertha von Suttner, Mahatma Gandhi, Kathy Kelly, Megan Rice, Jan Oberg, and Vijay Mehta, we aim to honour their legacy and dedication, as well as inspiring hope for a more peaceful world.

Be sure to check out our platform for peace with over 100,000 links devoted to peacebuilding and nonviolence and related topics such as conflict regions and the military.

Role Models for the Environment

With environmental issues now a top priority for seven in ten people, and the effects of climate change negatively affecting about 85% of the world's population, it is no wonder that inaction by governments on key environmental issues has become a prime concern for many activists, environmentalists, scientists, and rights defenders.

As climate law becomes stronger, and more and more citizens take matters into their own hands, it proves that even the actions of one person can make a difference.

The effects of the fossil fuel industry, deforestation, intensive agriculture, transportation, and over consumption are causing unprecedented flooding, wildfires, drought, heatwaves, biodiversity loss, climate instability, refugees, extraordinary financial costs, and even conflict across the globe.

We take a look at some of the most important people driving the climate movement and pushing for environmental protection including Greta Thunberg, Berta Cáceres, Wangari Maathai, Bill McKibben, and Steven Donziger.

For further information on the future of our planet, check out our comprehensive platforms for environment, the climate crisis, and nature.


Inspiring quotation from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. :"I’m here to say to you this morning that some things are right and some things are wrong. Eternally so, absolutely so. It’s wrong to hate. It always has been wrong and it always will be wrong! It’s wrong in America, it’s wrong in Germany, it’s wrong in Russia, it’s wrong in China! It was wrong in 2,000 BC., and it’s wrong in 1954 AD. It always has been wrong, and it always will be wrong." Sermon that King delivered on February 28, 1954

Role Models for Human Rights

Many people around the world are still fighting for their rights due to persecution based solely on their race, gender, age, religion, place of birth, skin colour, or sexual orientation. Many are not even aware that they have had their rights stripped from them and live under daily violations of their freedoms.

We honour the courageous rights defenders, educators, activists, and NGOs who standup for the voiceless in the name of equality and justice. Right advocates raise awareness, promote and protect the civil, social, and political rights of others, and effect positive change for a more equal world.

Those working in this field face numerous challenges, some which place their lives in danger. They often become the enemy of powerful governments, criminal groups, gangs, and corporations. In 2019, Colombia witnessed one human rights defender killed every four days. Smear campaigns, threats, arrest, corrupt judicial processes, and forced disappearances are also commonplace, more often than not with complete impunity.

Learn about brave human rights advocates past and present such as Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Rachel Corrie, Malalai Joya, Rigoberta Menchu TumShirin Ebadi, Vittorio Arrigoni, and many others. For further reading on human rights in general we recommend heading to our excellent platform for human rights with over 40,000 hand-picked links dedicated to our rights and freedoms.

Role Models for Social Justice

Social justice is the concept of fairness between individuals in society. Equal access to opportunities, education, healthcare, income, employment, and legal representation are unfortunately still a goal that society is striving for. It is about recognizing and eliminating inequalities in order to build a just and inclusive world for everyone.

As Desmond Tutu said, “Exclusion is never the way forward on our shared paths to freedom and justice.”

There are many groups of society which find themselves marginalised, underrepresented, or treated poorly simply because of their gender, sexual preferences, racial background, nationality, or religious beliefs.

We have selected some of the most inspiring social justice advocates, human rights experts, and equality campaigners for you explore and gain inspiration from. Finds guides to the work of Mother Teresa, Sulak Sivaraksa, Krishnammal Jagannathan & Sankaralingam, Kiran Bedi, and Karen Woo amongst many others.

For further information on Social Justice, check out our platform for equality and justice featuring key social justice themes such as economic inequality, workers' rights, the LGBTQI+ community, minorities, refugees, racism, inclusion, empowerment, community service, and education.

Role Models in Politics and Economy

World leaders carry huge responsibilities on their shoulders and must answer to the demands of their citizens. With the rise of right-wing authoritarianism, coups, armed conflict, corruption, and the pressing need for greater equality and climate action, the need for exemplary politicians is greater than ever.

We bring you a comprehensive guide to the leaders who are not afraid to stand-up for social justice, citizens' rights, peace, and the environment. Learn more about our heroes including Bernie Sanders, George Galloway, Nelson Mandela, Elizabeth Warren, Salma Yaqoob, and Kofi Annan. You can even find a compilation of historical political thinkers whose theories created a culture of critical thinking and greater political comprehension.

For inspiring economists redefining economic thinking here is our top selection of exemplary people in economy whose contributions to finance have created positive social change. Learn about Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Bangladeshi social entrepreneur Muhammad Yunus, labour rights advocate Robert Reich, and Austrian Right Livelihood Award winner Leopold Kohr.

By highlighting and celebrating the work of these progressive thinkers, reform pioneers, social entrepreneurs, and financial experts thinking outside the box, we aim to inspire hope for a more just economic system where social uplift, not profit for the few, is the primary motivation.

Role Models in Science and Education

Scientists and educators are responsible for the advancement of society and the shaping of young minds. Both professions contribute massively to the progression of humanity and the creation of a better and more knowledgeable world.

We take a look at various inspiring scientists whose dedication to their field has helped thousands in the form of medical and health discoveries, the development of technologies, a greater understanding of climate change, and many other lifesaving discoveries. Checkout our guides to Hans-Peter Dürr, James Hansen, Maurice Wilkins, Marie Curie and many others.

At Better World Info we advocate for quality, free, and accessible education for everyone.

Role Models in Culture, Philanthropy and Religion

Culture is threaded into the fabric of our lives, its importance often undervalued and underfunded. The role that culture plays in creating tolerance, preserving traditions, languages, and quality of life must not be overlooked.

Our collection of artistic, literary, and musical role models showcases the talent of individuals who bring global attention to important issues, open the eyes of the general public, and use the stage for advocacy. Learn more about people such as George Orwell, Rebeca Lane, Woody Guthrie and many others.

With the popularity of philanthropy at its highest ever, and the need for investment in huge global issues such as poverty, environmental challenges, and healthcare, we want to celebrate the inspiring philanthropists who are using their money for social uplift and the greater good. People like MacKenzie Scott and George Soros, and organisations like the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative provide funding for long lasting change which can span generations.

Finally, we explore the impact of important religious leaders who have helped to bring more peace, stability, and tolerance to our world. Role models such as Roman Catholic priest Bruce Kent who campaigned for nuclear disarmament with the CND, peace activist and Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and of course the Dalai Lama whose nonviolent opposition to the occupation of Tibet has drawn international praise.

For more information on these topics make sure to visit our extensive platforms for culture and religion all from the perspective of creating a better world.

Martin Luther King Jr.

The January 16 federal holiday marks the birthday of the Afro-American minister and activist who became one of the lead figures in the 1955 Civil Rights Movement to end racial discrimination and segregation. Inspired by his Christian faith and Gandhi's works, he always advocated non-violent activism. For his constant commitment to civil rights, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. Just four years later he was assassinated. His legacy and political ideas are still alive today.

Judy Heumann (1947-2023)

Her journey began when she was refused a job as a teacher because of her physical condition, having been diagnosed with polio at the age of 18 months. This refusal led her to dedicate her life to building a more inclusive society for people with disabilities, believing that it was exclusion from society, not disability, that held people back. Heumann was a great civil rights heroine who dedicated her life to advocating for the inclusion of people with disabilities in the U.S.

Malcolm X

This year marks the 57th anniversary of the assassination of one of the icons of the civil rights movement. Last year, two men wrongly accused of his murder were exonerated, so we still don't know who killed him and why. Malcolm is sometimes seen as MLK's counterpart for his belief that black Americans should protect themselves from aggression by any means, which contrasted with King's non-violent discourse. In reality, Malcolm did not advocate violence, but encouraged active action for freedom, equality and justice.

Bruce Kent obituary (1929 – 2022)

We send our condolences to the loved ones of charismatic peace advocate Bruce Kent. The Roman Catholic priest dedicated his life to the campaign for nuclear disarmament, becoming a figure head and inspiration to peace advocates. He was the vice-president of the CND and Pax Christi - the international Catholic peace movement. During many of his public speeches he condemned the use of nuclear weapons and labelled them immoral due to their ability to commit mass murder.
