AARP New York will gather prominent thought-leaders from academia, government, non-profits, and the philanthropic and aging advocacy networks to provide a first-hand look at the work that is making local communities more livable as New York moves toward becoming the first "age-friendly" state in the nation.
Already, 16 municipalities in New York have joined AARP's Age-Friendly Network, committing their elected leadership to work actively toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages. Governor Andrew Cuomo outlined a goal this year to make New York the first age-friendly state.
Presentations and panel discussions at "Leading on Livability: Innovation for an Age-Friendly New York" will cover livability topics including main street revitalization, safe streets, universal design, health-across-all-policies initiatives and transportation policy.
