Safe, Connected Age-Friendly Communities - Mobile Tour
(Limited capacity and separate advance registration required)
Co-hosted by AARP and Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative

Stephen P. Clark Government Center Lobby
111 NW 1st St, Miami, FL 33128
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (Check in at 12:45 pm)

Like many urban areas around the country, Miami-Dade County's population is growing older. Now more than ever, older adults seek not only essential supportive services, but also great ways to stay active in their communities, age in place, connect with others, and share their experience and wisdom. In this mobile workshop - hosted by AARP, the Walk2Connect Cooperative, and the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative in collaboration with the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade - we'll explore the area around the downtown Government Center and discuss what makes an age-friendly city, from street furniture and transit connectivity, to walking groups and inter-generational activities. Come learn about what the County and City of Miami are already doing and how an age-friendly city is a city friendly to all.
