Adjustments- The Role of Community Design in Supporting the Dynamic Last Third of Our Lives
Concord Center for the Arts, Concord
Whether we live in a bustling town or quiet rural village, many of us want to stay right where we are as we age. What do our communities need to be thinking about to make this easier – or possible – for us to do so?
Our built environment – from building-specific to the overall design of the community – plays a key part in the health and vitality of our lives as we get older. In some towns, almost a third of the population will soon be over 60 – that cannot be ignored, or addressed in the “traditional” way. We need to make adjustments – in how we think about getting older, and how our communities plan for it.
The intention of this conference is to raise awareness of this key issue. Intended audience: community members and their leaders; planners, designers and developers/builders of and within our communities; lawmakers and all champions of quality of life for people of all ages and stages of living.
