The Australian Computer Society and TAFE NSW are 
having a free Green ICT event, 17th November 2008 
in Sydney, with TAFE detailing their new ICT 
sustainability courses: "How will the Carbon 
Pollution Reduction Scheme affect me, my job and 
my business?": 


     Two polls taken in 2008 show that while well 
over 70% of the population agree that Australia 
should act now to on climate change less than 10% 
understand the Australian government’s master 
plan for tackling climate change, the Carbon 
Pollution Reduction Scheme, and how it will affect businesses and individuals.

     This presentation will provide a Plain 
English overview of the Carbon Pollution 
Reduction Scheme, its effects on businesses and 
individuals and hints on how you can act now to 
reduce its impacts on you and your business.

     You will also hear about the new Accredited 
TAFE course starting in Feb 2009 "Sustainability in ICT Systems"

     As with all TAFE courses you gain not only 
Technical knowledge but the practical backup.

     The modules are:-

        1. Install and Test Power Saving Hardware
        2. Install and Test Power Management Software
        3. Install and Test Renewable Energy System for ICT Networks
        4. Implement Server Virtualisation for a sustainable ICT System
        5. Install and Test Web 2.0 OS and
