Hosted by AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy and Engagement Officer Nancy LeaMond the evening will feature innovative discussions by regional and national leaders exploring the vision and central promise of AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States & Communities which strives to help create livable, equitable communities for everyone. Launched in 2012 in partnership with the World Health Organization's Age-Friendly Cities and Communities Program, communities enrolled in AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States & Communities program enhance livability through eight Domains of Livability: outdoor spaces and buildings, transportation, housing, social participation, respect and social inclusion, civic participation and employment, communication and information, and community support and health services. Please join us as we explore the livability revolution shaping cities across the United States and around the world, celebrating Seattle’s emerging leadership as a groundbreaking Age-Friendly community.
