While there are clear logistical benefits to be gained from the expanded possibilities of e-learning capacity, a fairly simple calculation also demonstrates the environmental benefits of this type of learning platform, especially for the engagement of participantsseparated by a significant geographical distances.The calculation factors involved for this particular training course are: 113 gm/km of CO2 emissions for a long-distance flight, over a distance of 7,791 km between Budapestand Beijing (round-trip equals times two), and 2,000 participants: i.e. [0.113 x 2 x 7,791x 2,000 = 3,521 tonnes of savings on CO2 emissions]!Please visitec2.org.ch to learn more about EC2 and the E-learning Training course.
