Our Expereince

Alberto Delgado, one of the volunteers of QuipuNet (and one of ECIE's founders) organized an Internet Conference on the Japan earthquake (Kobe) and the lessons learned from it. Alberto, a Civil Engineer, was working for the Taisei Corporation in Japan at the time. The guest lecturers included professionals and University Professors from the fields of civil engineering and architecture.


This seminar was jointly hosted by QuipuNet and the UN- IDNDR (United Nations-International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction). This seminar explored ways to make cities safer, specially those at risk from natural disasters. The Conference took place from 26 August 1996 to 25 October 1996. The Conference was part of the United Nations' effort in bringing awareness to natural disasters and their prevention.


This conference focused on floods and droughts and featured reports that concisely outlined the impact of water-related disasters on specific locations around the world. The aim of the conference was to move forward to build a culture of prevention, by asking participants to focus on recent successful actions that have mitigated disasters' impact. The conference took place from 22 September to 24 October 1997


The slogan "Prevention begins with Information" highlighted the 1998 World Disaster Reduction Campaign with the theme of Natural Disaster Prevention and the Media. This conference took place from the 28th of September through the 18th of October, 1998

This is a two-part seminar we started to give in 2000. It was directed primarily to the Latino community in the Seattle-Tacoma area. The seminar is an introduction to IT (Information Technology) to show Latinos the opportunities that exist today in using computers and the Internet. The seminar was presented in Spanish.


This presentation is a workshop whose title in english is "Creating Jobs for a Better Future". This workshop, directed to the Latino community, is designed to teach the power of sharing ideas and how they can be adapted and developed to create new jobs.


Although the Internet has become a well known factor in our lives, it is surprising to discover how few people actually understand the "power" of the Internet in communications. Going beyond simple e-mail and web page browsing, the use of the tools of Information Communications Technology (ICT) can have a dramatic effect in bringing about change through knowledge and effective communication.


This small workshop, titled, "Creating Harmony" teaches how to improve communication in the home, at work, or in personal relationships. It also provides methods for improving self-esteem.
