Last Friday I attended an EcoDriving training session here at TME. It was led by Bert Bosmans from Ecolife, a Belgian NGO that TME has worked with for some years to promote EcoDriving across Europe. I chose for the simulator based training, as I wanted to see what the 10000 other people across six countries who have followed this training since 2007 had experienced.
Day-by-day, we are all made aware of the environmental impact of our daily life and more and more of us change our routines for the better. Things like recycling bins and low voltage lightbulbs are part of my family’s daily life, .and I’ve even got used to taking my bags and boxes with me when I go to the shops.
Every day I’m reminded how leaps in technology have become an accepted part of everyday life. With a lightweight laptop and a wireless connection I can take my whole office just about anywhere, I can fit my entire music collection into my shirt pocket, well, I could if it wasn’t already full of my Blackberry, which takes e-mail to places you never knew you needed it.. It wasn’t so long ago that things like these were just the stuff of Doctor Who!
