Communities for All Ages: Inspiring Ideas from America’s City Leaders and AARP

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM

Approximately 46 million people in the United States are now age 65 and older. That number will grow over the next 15 years to 73 million — or one out of every five people nationwide. Regardless of age, we all want the same things: safe, affordable housing, good infrastructure; a healthy environment and opportunities for advancement.

In this session, AARP and city leaders will ignite a conversation about creative, inspiring ideas for making communities more livable for people of all ages. Great communities take time to build and sustain, but “quick actions” can be the critical spark for longer-term change. Hear from 2017 grantees of the AARP Community Challenge who are building momentum for livable community’s progress. By shining a spotlight on these solutions— and digging deeper into how ideas are being turned into action—this session will provide inspiration and information that makes it a little easier to trigger change.
