The Information Age is creating many challenges and opportunities for our global society. Paradoxically, the same technologies which offer unrivalled opportunities for mankind to communicate, collaborate and build a rich, equitable and sustainable future, are also creating a divided world in which individual self-interest could lead to the destruction of the human race. Virtual learning/conferencing technologies offer great hope for the development of social and economic wealth within communities, helping to address some of the less desirable aspects of globalisation by creating an environment in which people can work together to mutual benefit, and strengthening the bonds of stable and fruitful relationships. The Harborough Community Learning Network project in the UK is a pioneering scheme to explore how HP's Virtual Classroom technology might be used to create a virtual community centre in which all sectors of the Harborough community can learn, work and socialise.
