Claim: Transforming the orientation of technology is not simple, as technologies do not exist in isolation. They are linked to other technologies, embedded in socio-technological systems, and connected to networks of actors that depend ont hose technologies and systems for their economic position and status. The process of transformation to more sustainable forms of development will therefore involve change in technologies, socio-technical systems and, ultimately, in the relationships and position of actors in the networks that span these systems.
