FAQ

We collect non-commercial links containing information and links to organisations and initiatives that have no  commercial interests. Our aim is to provide information on important topics and not to earn money. We cannot and do not intend to raise any claim to exhaustiveness. The Internet is far too big for that. However, this collection of links makes it possible to gain an overview of facts and different perspectives on current themes. Links with racist or sexist contents are not included. Freedom of opinion and democracy do not justify every political utterance and not everything is published. You can find out more about our principles.  

We believe that a one-stop-shop to quality links is necessary. We enjoy creating and developing a single site on the Internet containing important information on current events and wide-ranging themes, thus enabling people to inform themselves quickly. We believe that we provide more and better information on global themes related to our future than commercially oriented link collections. Our links are hand-picked. By building up networks of active and engaged citizens and by sharing information, we hope to make a contribution to a better world and to encourage the active use of the Internet.

Providing you with few links is not sufficient for obtaining information and gaining a broad overview of a topic. Several good links give you an important insight into the complexity of each respective theme. Important and up-to-date links are usually at the top of the list under each subject heading. 

Nobody has to read it all. Anyone who has questions or is looking for general information should select whatever seems to be important or significant for his or her needs. There is never any one piece of correct information. Whoever is looking for the answer to a question or is seeking general information will easily find it. A particular advantage that we offer is that different information can be compared.  

We finance the collection ourselves. Better World Info is consciously free of advertising. That enables us to retain our independence and balance. We do not wish to be dependent on donors with one-sided interests. However, if you wish to make a donation you will help us improve the quality of our website and help professionally publicise Better World Info.

No. We are not associated with any party or religion. Our aim is to provide information for consciousness-raising and to motivate people to work towards a better world in a more focused way on the basis of the information we provide.

We are a few ordinary people who think critically and are worried about conflict, environmental degradation and the flagrant injustice of the disparity between rich and poor people in countries around the world. We believe that information precedes action and that democracy requires information. We hope that it will be easier for people to work for a better world if they have access to a wider variety of information than that provided in daily newspapers.

You can send us links that you enjoy and think are suitable for Better World Info. You can inform us of any inaccessible links and suggest new subject headings or topics. 

You can link Better World Info or recommend the site to others. We also think it is important to distribute our  information sheet as widely as possible. We can send you as many of these as you like, free of charge.

People involved in relevant areas and experts on specific subjects are very welcome, and, if suitable, can become permanent moderators for that topic. Simply send us an email (preferably with a telephone number or Skype name) and we will be pleased to speak to you about possibilities in supporting the link directory.
