We collect non-commercial links containing information and links to organisations and initiatives that do not pursue commercial interests. Our aim is to collect 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. But 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. Here you can find out more about our principles. To top ^
Why was this collection started?
Because it is necessary, and because 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 to do with social engagement and education 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. To top ^
What is the use of offering thousands of links?
Just a few links are not sufficient for obtaining information and gaining a broad overview of a topic. Several good links give an 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. To top ^
Who do you expect to read it all?
Nobody has to read it. Anyone who has questions or is looking for general information should select whatever seems to be important or significant for his needs. There is never any one piece of correct information. But whoever is looking for the answer to a question or is seeking general information will easily find what he or she is looking for. A particular advantage is that different information can be compared. To top ^
Who finances the link collection?
So far, nobody; we finance ourselves. Better World Links are quite 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 can help us improve the quality of our website even more and to publicise Better World Links in a more professional way. To top ^
Is the site supported by a political party?
No; we are not associated with any party. 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. To top ^
Who are the operators and what are their aims?
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 and countries in the world. We believe that information precedes action and that democracy requires information. We therefore want to provide this information and 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.

How can I get involved with Better World Links?
You can send us links that are suitable for Better World Links and that you find good. You can inform us of any inaccessible links and suggest new subject headings or themes.
It would be good if you were to link into Better World Links or recommend the site to others. We also think it is important to distribute our little 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 they can become permanent moderators of a theme. Simply send us an email (preferably with a telephone number) and we will be pleased to speak to you about possibilities for you to support the link collection. To top ^
