Finally! After months of research and planning, we unveiled our program for assessing IT-related power usage and associated greenhouse gas emissions. Code name: Project Greenhouse. The workshop was held The Connection, next to the store. Food provided by the Haley House, a non-profit whose programs include a bakery training program for disadvantaged Roxbury residents.
We had 27 RSVPs but the turnout was over 30 people. There was a very high level of interest in the material, as evidenced by the questions participants asked and the number of followup appointments generated in response to the event.
We’ll be doing many more of these workshops as we continue to develop our methodology. Stay tuned!
