Where We Live 100+


Where We Live: Communities for All Ages  — a book by Nancy LeaMond, AARP Executive Vice President, Community, State and National Affairs — highlights initiatives that mayors nationwide have launched to improve their communities, respond to pressing issues, and build partnerships.

AARP's hope is that by spotlighting these efforts and initiatives, we'll jar loose even more examples and ideas of how our nation's cities and towns can be more livable for people of all ages.

4. Promotional Event

Host an event so we can highlight a town or city in your area as part of our Where We Live outreach activities by having AARP and a local mayor team up at a volunteer project that makes a community more livable for people of all ages. (For instance, local media and residents could be invited to an event that the mayor, an AARP representative and a community partner kick off with very brief remarks that also mention the book.) Interested? Let us know!
