AbstractThe author describes a Dutch program on sustainable technology development that was carried out in the early 1990s that started out by asking the question, "what would it take for the Netherlands to have an environmentally sustainable economy in a world that was environmentally sustainable and equitable?" The project sought to set up new innovation networks and work with new methods to search for sustainable technological solutions. They looked at what humans would need to live fifty years from now, and demonstrated what steps we should take today for new technologies and systems to be in place in time. This book describes the goals, methods, final outcomes and key lessons of the project, and illustrates them in a series of case studies.
