Communities Where We All Can Thrive

A Secure, Healthy Environment

Everyone benefits from a safe, healthy environment. Communities that avoid sprawling development and traffic congestion reward their residents with cleaner air. Secure, well maintained parks and recreation areas encourage walking, sports and other exercise. Land use policies that promote an accessible mix of business, cultural and recreational facilities attract people to common spaces that enhance community life, reduce crime and combat the mental and physical dangers of isolation.

Speedy Access to the Internet

In today’s world, everyone needs access to affordable, high-speed connections. Yet many parts of rural and urban America lack access to broadband technology, which enables fast connections on the Internet. AARP supports efforts to encourage the spread of broadband, which makes the world more accessible to everyone and can be especially valuable to people with limited mobility, including those with disabilities and the very old.

Telecommuting (including for volunteer work), online learning, telemedicine, support-monitoring devices and other technologies are all facilitated by broadband, which only will become more important in the future.
