Speaker:
Bob Crooks, Lead for Sustainable Green IT for Defra and Chair of the Green IT Specialist Group

Joint event with the Hampshire Branch, BCS Green IT Specialist Group and Southampton Solent University.

Bob Crooks will be giving us a talk on where to get started on the Green IT agenda. This now ranges across the whole ICT life cycle and beyond, with ICT being seen increasingly as part of the solution as well as part of the problem around us living more sustainable lives at home and at work. He will draw on his extensive work in this area as chair of the BCS Green IT Specialist Group as well as being the Green ICT lead for Defra and a key player on the Cabinet Office's Green IT delivery unit that has recently published the UK's Greening Government ICT strategy.
