Sustainable Changes

A webinar from Community AGEnda

This webinar explored types of initiatives to fund that will yield enduring change that makes our communities more livable for older adults. Representatives from GIA’s five Community AGEnda sites described how they brought about change to make their communities age-friendly for many years to come. These achievements included improvements for older adults in transportation, housing, accessible public parks with programming for older adults, and training for city councils and boards of aldermen. All the presenters' organizations had funding from both local sources and Pfizer Foundation through GIA. Presenters: Cathy Boyer-Shesol from Mid-America Regional Council in Kansas City; Kathryn Lawler from Atlanta Regional Commission; Amy St. Peter of Maricopa Association of Governments in Phoenix; Phil Stafford of University of Indiana/Indiana Grantmakers Alliance; and Peter Wood of Health Foundation of South Florida in Miami. Moderator: John Feather, CEO of Grantmakers In Aging. Webinar date: April 13, 2015.
