Abstract After three-and-a-half years of experience with 120 networks of livestock farmers a new approach has arisen which offers good perspectives for encouraging sustainable innovations: the FAN approach (Free Actors in Networks), with actors focusing on energy and connections to steer things along. Part one of this publication describes the approach and how it has come into being, its theoretical substantiation and the conclusions which can be drawn on the basis of this experience. The second part of this book is practice oriented. It describes the major tools, four analysis models and two self-evaluation methods, for free actors and illustrates them with examples taken from the network experiences.
