Event: Age-friendly communities? Philanthropy’s role

Age-friendly communities? Philanthropy’s role

Wednesday, 12 September 2007

The next two decades will see unprecedented changes in community structures and activities. As Baby Boomers leave the labour market the proportion of retirees active in civic, social and leisure activities will rise dramatically. Mobility patterns will become more diverse. Labour market shortages will occur.

What opportunities and challenges will this present for community strengthening initiatives? How may philanthropy best position itself to take advantage of these new social conditions?

Funders are invited to engage with expert panel members as we explore the most effective ways for philanthropy to aid the creation of age-friendly communities.

This seminar is being supported by the JO & JR Wicking Trust
