General Information:  

A conference entitled 'Towards a sustainable Information Society', 
organised by the Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective 
Technological Studies and the 'Alliance for a sustainable Information 
Society' (ASIS) project funded by the EU's ACTS programme, will take 
place in Brussels on 21 and 22 February 2000.  

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from both 
the Information Society and sustainable development perspectives to 
raise awareness of the issues affecting both and strengthen synergies 
between the two. The main issues which will be the focus of the 
conference are:  

- Different perspectives of a sustainable Information Society in both 
global and regional contexts; 
- Practical steps, based on the results of the ASIS project, which 
can lead towards a sustainable Information Society.  

While the main issues surrounding sustainability include 
environmental, economic , social and cultural aspects, the 
Information Society will have particular importance in supporting and 
developing social sustainability and cultural identities. The 
conference will attempt to set out strategies and policies to support 
a sustainable Information Society.
