As the name implies, advocating for a high-quality urban environment is fundamental to the mission of the Design Advocacy Group.


We base our advocacy positions on the consensus that we hear at our monthly open meetings, which is refined by discussion among the members of the Steering Committee.


In addition to issuing position papers, DAG conducts regular public forums on important issues, provides expert testimony before government agencies, writes frequent letters to government agencies and to newspapers expressing our positions, and publishes regularly on newspaper op-ed pages.
