The Upper Harbor Community Engagement Learning Table is a space to advance development that strengthens the social fabric of the existing North Minneapolis community, bring greater wealth and local ownership into the community, and foster stronger relationships between North Minneapolis and the Mississippi River.

The Learning Table provides the “learning water;” a place to ask critical questions and develop the “learning glue;” a place to develop relationships, create partnerships, and make commitments to explore ideas for incorporation in the development for the initiative. Each Learning Table theme is directly related to development topics with a goal to:

  • Learn together 
  • Create a shared approach 
  • Coordinate efforts

Learn about future Learning Tables
