Every person, regardless of their age, race, sex, class, disability or religion should have access and the resources needed to be an active participant in their community. The goal of this project is to highlight the importance of creating opportunities for the aging population to be involved in community initiatives and in particular, environmental initiatives. This project is meant to create awareness of senior’s role and capabilities to be active in a community, potential barriers older adults face in participation and the importance of acknowledging and including older adults in community conversations that have the potential to impact their future.
