ICTs, notably the Internet and mobile telephone, are transforming the way we live and work, our social relationships and communities, even our impact on the environment. They are changing the very nature of human communication. Making the Net Work looks in detail at the defining characteristics of the digital society, and suggests that ICT equips us better than at any previous point in the industrial age to face the challenges of sustainable development. The authors explore four features of our digital society: networks, information, trust and speed, and conclude that the society thus described is ultimately one of greater choice and power for all. For this reason, adopting shared social values is crucial for sustainable development. Making the Net Work asks for our participation and commitment to just such values, and presents practical solutions and opportunities to involve businesses, governments, consumers and citizens alike.
