WASHINGTON, DC—Creative work from communities across the nation is showcased in the third edition of AARP’s Where We Live: Communities for All Ages series, now available for free. This edition shares more than 100 articles and dozens of photographs on the ways communities throughout the U.S. are becoming great places to live for people of all ages. It also highlights mayors and other community leaders who are making this change happen. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are featured in the book.
“Over the past three years, we’ve shared hundreds of ideas and examples from community leaders through the Where We Live series,” said Nancy LeaMond, AARP Executive Vice President of Community, State and National Affairs. “AARP is proud to put a spotlight on what this livability revolution looks like on the ground, from city and countywide initiatives to small changes that make a big impact.”
The new edition celebrates what AARP is calling the “Experienced Class” — people who enhance communities through their skills and life lessons, influence and involvement. Each chapter shines a spotlight on the positive contributions that older adults make in communities highlighting the actions community leaders can take in their own communities.
