The goal of the Long Table Series is to connect the high-level, policy-based Greenest City Goals with real people and actions for implementing the Goals. For example, when the Greenest City Goals state the objective to “reduce per capita water consumption by 33%,” the Long Table Series brought a group of people together, provided a process by which one could obtain and install a rain barrel, and had guests contextualizing the use of a rain barrel in a larger story about water. Most importantly, the event built community around the implementation of the goals: people are together in a space, talking about sustainability, participating in solution-making and building relationships with each other.
