Inspiring and Educational – For Self-Learning

TFF provides the links below and hopes some will be of interest. Listing them here does not mean that we endorse each and everyone.

We do not claim to know the reliability of information found in all corners of them, readers may judge for themselves.

The links are meant to provide aha-experiences – helping you to stumble upon something you did not consciously look for but catches your interest.

So, they are diverse and deliberately not listed in categories, alphabetical or geographical orders.

And one more thing. We hope they will make you see that, in contrast to the media, there are so many good initiatives, so much constructive knowledge and so many people who think, write and act for a better world that it should be difficult to be a pessimist. Wasn’t it for the media which gives you limitless doom and gloom on a daily basis.
