Hi Jenny, Hi Jack,

I would be very interested to contribute (at my level) in developing such a
research agenda. I am not sure how much has been done in that respect. It
could be a good start to check the outcomes of the ICT for sustainability
conference in Zurich in February (http://2013.ict4s.org/) and the
conference in Galway in June (
did you participate to one of those?
