Please join Laura Poskin, the Project Manager for Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh, an initiative of Southwestern Pennsylvania Partnership for Aging (SWPPA), for a Sustainable Community Development Network (SCDN) webinar to learn about the recently released a 30-step Action Plan to make the area’s neighborhoods more inclusive and respectful of every generation. In the next two decades, the number of residents ages 65 and older will increase by 40% in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Hear what steps your community can take to be welcoming to persons of all ages.

Meeting the needs of an older population comes with challenges, but as more residents live longer lives, it means our region has a new, growing resource: people with buying power, career expertise, and lived experience.  Those challenges range from simple communication issues to systemic transportation barriers.  For more information read the Age-Friendly Greater Pittsburgh Action Plan, and this overview in Smart Cities Dive that features initiatives in Pittsburgh and Columbus.  This SCDN webinar is brought to you by Sustainable Pittsburgh and Local Government Academy.
