April 5, 2022, from 9:00 to 10:30 am ET

You are cordially invited to the launch of our report, Silver Hues: Building Age-Ready Cities, on April 5, 2022, from 9:00 until 10:30 am ET.

At the launch and in the report, we will prompt our panelists to reflect on the question: How can we plan, design, and create age-ready cities and towns for a silver-hued future—one in which older persons will increasingly outnumber younger ones in more and more countries? Given the global pandemic, climate change, and the unique situation of older persons, inclusion has never been more important.  Moreover, as the report shows, age-readiness isn’t just for older persons: an age-ready city is a city for all, and has universal benefits.
