Join our Upcoming Webinar
In her new book Climate Resilience for an Aging Nation, community resilience and housing expert Danielle Arigoni argues that we cannot achieve true resilience until communities adopt interventions that work to meet the needs of their oldest residents.
Join this America Walks webinar for a discussion on how to integrate age-friendly resilience into community planning and disaster preparedness efforts.
The discussion will be hosted by America Walks board members Arlis Reynolds, a city council member from Costa Mesa, CA, and David Dixon, an urban planner with Stantec.
