This especially means centering the needs and voices of marginalized people, including older adults. In this session, AARP International will share strategies and tools to achieve that including their newly established Equity by Design Principles created by and for built environment sector professionals. The High Line and Penn South Program for Seniors will also share their place-based approaches for older adult engagement and programming in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.
