ICTs, the Internet and Sustainability: A discussion paper

By David Souter - 2012

This discussion paper addresses two issues of critical importance for today’s world and future generations:
• The challenge of sustainability in the world economy, society and environment;
• The transformations in economy, society, politics and culture that are resulting from the spread of information and communications technologies (ICTs) and especially the Internet.

The paper raises questions and provoke debate about the relationships among ICTs, the Internet and sustainable development. It summarizes the meaning and context of sustainability today, the changes that have taken place in information and communications since the first Earth Summit in 1992, and the impact that these have had on the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainability.

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
