Context + Discourse promotes discussion between community stakeholders, civic leaders, and government agencies about the physical environment.
— Brian Ulaszewski, Long Beach Post

This education program provides a forum for presenting a variety of urban planning, policy and design topics through informal salons, panel discussions, film screenings and tours. The curriculum of these interactive events is developed to provide a context for formulating policy, programs and projects in the city. These publicly accessible, free-entry forums engage, educate and empower a broad portion of the populace, creating a more equitable landscape for decision-making. Partners for Context + Discourse events include Green LB, US Green Building Council, American Institute of Architecture, America Walks and Building Healthy Communities Long Beach, and have included topics such as urban infrastructure, park development for compact cities and walkable communities.
