Design for a Small (Aging) Planet Symposium
Success! We had a strong turn-out! Keep an eye on the Symposium web page for photos, tweets and other wrap-up from our speakers and participants.

We age in a community, and designing communities for aging well needs to be considered by community planners now. How can we design environments for our small, aging planet?

Six speakers, including a keynote from Scott Ball, author and leader in the Atlanta, Georgia, Livable Communities movement, presented over two days, April 30-May 1, at the Indiana Memorial Union in Bloomington, Indiana.Visit Symposium Website
