Description

You are invited!

Please join us on June 25, 2017 from 10 am to 3 pm at Callingwood Farmers' Market (6655 178 Street NW, Edmonton in the Safeway Farmers' Market) to participate in an Interactive Drop-In Session for the Advancing Age Friendly Edmonton project.

About Advancing Age Friendly Edmonton

Age Friendly Edmonton™ is an initiative to build a city that values, respects and actively supports the well-being of seniors. Co-led by the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council (ESCC), Age Friendly Edmonton™ is a partnership of organizations committed to local action.

The Advancing Age Friendly Edmonton project is an update to the Age Friendly Edmonton five-year work plan (2013-2017). It focuses on four priority areas: aging in place, ageism, intergenerational, and diversity. The updated work plan will be prepared by Citizen Services, in collaboration with the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council, based on input provided by internal and external stakeholders, and members of the public. The work plan will inform the next stage of the Age Friendly Edmonton Initiative and will include goals, partnerships, projects, and resources.

Share Your Voice, Shape Your City - About the Public Interactive Drop-In Workshops

Join us at one of five workshops across the city to learn what has been done through the Age Friendly Edmonton initiative to date, to share what you envision is necessary to advance the Age Friendly Edmonton initiative further, and to provide your input on strategic actions that respond to the four priority areas. Your input will be used to inform the development of the updated Age Friendly Edmonton work plan.

The event is a drop-in event and refreshments will be provided. All ages are welcome – because we are all getting older and an age friendly city is a city that is friendly for all!

This event occurs at the same time as the Edmonton Seniors Centres Strategy Interactive Drop-In Session. These are separate projects but you are welcome to participate in both.
