Major changes that forever altered the form and future of San Diego

Six events detailed in words and pictures by six distinguished speakers in *six minutes and 20 or fewer images.*

In conjunction with the 2015 Balboa Park Centennial, C-3 will present a year-long series of Breakfast Dialogues on ideas and initiatives that will shape San Diego’s next 100 years built on the six pillars in Sustainable Paradise: The environment, communities, economic prosperity, international region, sustainable life and social systems.  “Archtober” gives us the opportunity to announce and kick-off this 2015 series while taking a look back.
