This paper describes a project to explore the possibilities of virtual worlds in educating Green IT. In the project, a virtual world has been created with various assignments to create awareness on sustainability aspects of IT. The world (and the assignments) will be incorporated in a course for first-year IT students. In order to measure the effects of the course, a questionnaire has been developed which can be used before and after the course to measure the change in attitude towards green IT.
