Propose $1M ICT education program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Having been to conferences this week on e-learning and climate change, I thought it was time to do something about it. If the next Australian Government would like to provide $1M, I could use it to teach how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 15% using ICT, to staff in the top 400 government and non-government organisations in Australia.

This would be using the current proven and accredited e-learning courses offered by ANU, ACS and Open Universities Australia.

It could be done in one to three years. As the students undertake real projects in their courses designed to be immediately implemented in the workplace, results could be expected in the first year.
