Green IT Seminar in Jakarta and Canberra

Greetings from the Australian National University "Fishbowl" video conference room in the Supercomputer Facility. Dr. Idris Sulaiman and myself are in a video conference with Binus University (Indonesia) making arrangements for a Green IT Seminar, 19 May 2010 (9am to 12:30pm Jakarta time and 12 noon to 4:30pm Canberra time) at the Joseph Wibowo Centre for Advanced Learning, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Idris and others in Canberra, will be taking part via the video link, so we needed to check everything was working. The ANU video room has space for four extra people, if anyone would like to sit in.

ANU is using the LifeSize video conference system. Currently I make use of the ANU's Moodle Learning Management System for teaching my Green Information Technology Strategies Course. Last Saturday, the Australian Prime Minister announced that ANU would be providing training for the Australian Public Service and this may involve use of video conferences.

In an era of corporate responsibility and Global warming sensitivity, being green becomes a prerogative for any institution. Based on a research made in 2009 on 1052 companies over 1000 employees worldwide, 52% are creating Green IT strategy plan and 29% have already got such a plan. That survey did not include Indonesia, which is highly vulnerable to climate change and was classified in a 2007 World Bank's report as the world's No. 3 greenhouse gas emitter due to its high deforestation. Being the largest economy in Southeast Asia and a member of the G-20 major economies, Indonesia will soon have to prioritize Green IT. What is the current situation in Indonesia? Are the CIOs of the largest Indonesian companies aware of the importance of Green IT? Do they know what Green IT is? Do they understand the economic and social issues?
