PechaKucha is a staging style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total) and is presented by multiple speakers.


 In honor of the Balboa Park Centennial, C-3 is presenting 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. 


The “Archtober” program kicked off this series with a look back at the evolution of the built environment.  This program will look at the history of conservation and enhancement of the natural environment, and envision future opportunities.
