Zusammenfassung
Changing patterns in the way we process information require a new approach to problems pending in our society. There is a general opinion that Internet, or more generally said, the new Information Society, has brought and will bring many benefits to the people. The euphoria is very wide, but other voices have recently started to challenge thi s too positive view of the future. As it grows in the actual socio-economic context, the Information Society is likely to bring higher mobility, and increased consumption patterns, possibly increasing the global material and flows even though information is itself immaterial. We assume here that the development of the Information Technologies in society cannot be stopped or reversed. The dynamics are by far too strong. From this assumption, we analyse and define strategies and needs to adapt these technologies so that they lead us toward a different, greener, more sustainable society: the Eco-Info-Society.
