Better world

Updated November 14, 2005

The Atlantic Review focuses on transatlantic relations and US foreign policy. Therefore the blogroll on our front-page is limited to blogs dealing with similar topics.

We have created this page for noteworthy blogs that do not cover transatlantic relations, but make a difference and deserve your attention.


Please send additional links and feedback to or leave a comment at the end of the post. The Atlantic Review is primarily interested in great blogs that are not (yet) well-known and that deal with underreported humanitarian issues and work on making this world a better place.



Sleepless in Sudan is "an aid worker diary from Darfur, Sudan: real stories, random observations and occasional rants on the lives of Darfur’s two million displaced people and the somewhat bewildered humanitarian agencies who are trying to help them. Sleepless in Sudan is just another website on just another violent conflict in Africa – but uncensored, direct and without the sugar-coating that the tightly controlled and highly politicized environment demands from the official sources."



Darfur Daily News is "a reliable source of daily news, articles, press statements and valuable information about what is going on in Darfur at the moment."


Coalition for Darfur



Strengthen The Good is "the nexus of a network of bloggers committed to raising awareness for small charities around the world. Every so often this space highlights a new "micro-charity"—a small, inspiring charity, one with a real face and where $1 makes a difference—and the bloggers in the network link to that post, sending traffic, and awareness, the charity’s way."


What you can do:

So what can I do? is a very popular "public service weblog promoting ethics in action. - My friends and I are often frustrated with the way society works. Soon we're all riled up and one of us will ask, "So what can I do?" This blog is a response to that question. Together, we'll explore ways to enact social change. We each can do and should do something to make our world a better place. Here are some ways to get started."



We Are Not Afraid "is an outlet for the global community to speak out against the acts of terror that have struck London, Madrid, New York, Baghdad, Basra, Tikrit, Gaza, Tel-Aviv, Afghanistan, Bali, and against the atrocities occurring in cities around the world each and every day. It is a worldwide action for people not willing to be cowed by terrorism and fear mongering. The historical response to these types of attacks has been a show of deadly force; we believe that there is a better way. We refuse to respond to aggression and hatred in kind. Instead, we who are not afraid will continue to live our lives the best way we know how. We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear."
