Turing Trust
EDM #485
Tabled 18 May 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House welcomes the news that the Turing Trust has chosen to adapt a unit in Pentland Industrial Estate in Midlothian to help its work supporting education programmes in Africa; notes that the Turing Trust supports education in sub-Saharan Africa by reusing computers and improving teacher training, providing development skills in the UK to make use of redundant IT equipment provided by big business users, which reduces waste and contributes to an environmentally friendly society; understands that the trust’s work has a significant environmental impact by offsetting 183 tonnes of CO2 emissions from reusing redundant PCs, which is the equivalent of planting 457 trees or offsetting the annual carbon footprint of 19 Scots; and recognises that Alan Turing was a leading figure at Bletchley Park during the Second World War and a brilliant mathematician and code breaker credited with doing much to assist an Allied victory.
