Creating Age-Friendly Communities with Green Infrastructure: How Addressing Needs of Children and Older Adults Benefits All (Webinar)

April 9, 2024 1:00pm to 1:00pm

Check out the latest installment of EPA's Green Infrastructure Webcast Series:

Description: As we are experiencing unpredictable conditions intensified by climate change, discussion on who is the most vulnerable has focused on race, income and zip codes. Age, however, must also be part of the conversation because children and older adults are at a higher risk for exposure to environmental factors such as excessive heat and flooding. In this webinar we will hear about the risk factors facing those older and younger among us and how age-friendly resilience strategies that include green infrastructure can mitigate risks while strengthening a community’s social infrastructure and benefit all.

SPEAKERS:

  • Danielle Arigoni, Managing Director for Policy and Solutions, National Housing Trust
  • Sharon Danks, Founder and CEO of Green Schoolyards America
  • Juan Mireles, Director, School Facilities and Transportation Services Division, California Department of Education
