Cities as Incubators for Successful Aging
Given the twin trends of urban living and shifting demography and the positive change within our reach, the pursuit of healthy, productive, and purposeful aging must become a priority for civic leaders. With the continuing partisanship and discord at the federal level, the nation’s cities are poised to lead, serving as labs for ideas and incubation in response to the new realities. Our workshop applies futurist exercises to imagine environments that best harness the longevity dividend.
