VOLA News: 

Voices of Los Alamos (VOLA) meets 6:30-7:30 p.m. May 10 and hosts a talk on “Peace Engineering, a New Mindset”.

Speakers at the meeting include Donna Koechner, program manager for Peace Engineering – ECHO, founding member of the Peace Engineering Consortium, and a research faculty at the University of New Mexico; Dr. Bernard Amadei, professor of civil engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder; and Dr. Ramiro Jordan, member of the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of New Mexico.

Peace Engineering is defined as the intentional application of systemic-level thinking of science, technology and engineering principles to directly promote and support conditions for peace.

Peace Engineering works directly toward a world where prosperity, sustainability, social equity, entrepreneurship, transparency, community voice and engagement, ethics and a culture of quality thrive.

Engineers have the power to play a vital role in the creative solutions that can radically transform and improve the wellbeing of people and other living systems, day to day. People want a new mindset for all existing disciplines, not only engineering, and to get new ones they have to create to address the global challenges.

The meeting is open to the public.

The zoom link will be posted on the VOLA Facebook group and shared to the VOLA mailing list. To be added to the mailing list, send a request to: wmwlosalamos@gmail.com
