The 2023 AARP Livable Communities Workshop will explore how local leaders can advance economic development in urban, suburban and rural communities.

Join national leaders, practitioners and AARP staff and volunteers for a deep-dive into how communities nationwide establish vibrant main streets, ensure well-connected communities, recognize the value of unpaid contributions, and provide small business opportunities for residents of all ages.

Through four core themes — Built Environment, Digital Connections, Work and Jobs, and Local Economies — participants in this two-day workshop will discuss best practices, insights, and inspiring next steps for meeting the economic development needs of a post-pandemic nation. In addition, a variety of presentations from more than 30 dynamic speakers will feature replicable best practices from practitioners across the country highlight effective livability strategies, initiatives, and programs.

The free, virtual workshop will be held September 27 and 28 from 1 to 5 p.m. ET. To learn more and register, visit: AARP.org/Livable2023.
