Abstract(in English) Various actions aiming at effective utilization of local resources and improvements in our daily lives originated by local communities are on the increase. To support the construction of digital information and communication networks for non-government organizations (NGOs) that lead these actions, we have set up a web site on the Internet and a management system for it in Shiga prefecture. The management system is operated by an NGO, an NGO-support organization, and NTT : each performs an appropriate role. We have been running the social experiment improving the site's functions to make it suitable for actual use by NGOs for more than two years. The first stage of this experiment showed that the site was useful for NGOs to inform citizens of their actions. In the second stage, we tested two new functions : one for exchanging information, which is a strong point of the Internet, among NGOs and between NGOs and citizens by using a bulletin board system, and the other for inputting data easily by fax. We report the results and discuss them.
