From AARP: How do we make our built environment, at every scale, a tool for disease prevention and the promotion of wellness for all? As we begin to build and renovate our homes and communities in a post-COVID-19 world, we must radically accelerate the application of an age-friendly framework that addresses disparities. This means housing and communities that are safe, affordable, and facilitate multigenerational interaction; meet sensory, emotional, physical, social, behavioral, and health needs across the lifespan; and include appropriate transportation options—enabling every resident to thrive.
Join our six-part dialogue series, where Dr. Bill Thomas will moderate a conversation with built environment leaders from the U.S. and across the globe, who will share diverse perspectives on what it will take to create enabling and equitable housing and multigenerational communities. Each dialogue is framed around 1-2 key principles for Creating Enabling & Equitable Housing and Multigenerational Communities.
The Equity by Design series is for policymakers, planners, designers and architects, developers, financiers, academic and real estate professionals, age-friendly community advocates, and other colleagues interested in making our built environment a tool to support everyone at every stage across increasingly long lifespans.
