  • Networks for people and their communities: Making the most of the information society in the European Union: Supplement containing working groups reports

Abstract

This supplement brings together the reports of the six Working Groups within which the main work of Information Society Forum has been carried out between September 1995 and May 1996. The groups met four times during this period. Their reports are based on debates conducted during these sessions and a large number of written contributions from individual members. The Working Groups considered the likely impacts of the new information and communications technologies on the following aspects of economic and social life:

- The impact on the economy and employment;
- Basic social and democratic values in the virtual community;
- The influence on public services;
- Education, training and learning in the Information Society;
- The cultural dimension and the future of the media;
- Sustainable development, technology and infrastructure.
