New Webinar- Livable Communities for All Ages
Webinar Title: Livable Communities for All Ages
Date and Time: Thursday, January 14th at 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern
About the Webinar
America Walks is excited to partner with AARP for its first webinar of 2016. To meet its commitment to creating great places for people of all ages, AARP has developed several resources that should be in the toolbox of any walking advocate. AARP’s Jeanne Anthony will walk participants through two of their resources, the Livability Index and the Livability Economy: People, Places and Prosperity Report. Following, hear how one local organization is using these resources in their efforts to make walkable communities a reality for people from ages 8 to 80.
