Lunch discussion explores creating age-friendly city

Generation Appreciation Philadelphia will sponsor a brown bag lunch discussion, Social Capital: What it is and why it matters for creating an age-friendly Philadelphia, on Tuesday, June 16th.  The event will feature Allen Glicksman, Ph.D., Director of Research and Evaluation at Philadelphia Corporation for Aging.

Social capital is a way to measure feelings of trust and belonging among residents of a neighborhood.  This talk will explain the concept of social capital, demonstrate its importance to our city, and serve as platform for a brief group discussion on ways that we, as city residents and professionals, can help create an urban environment that is supportive of people of all ages.

The discussion will be held from noon-1pm at the United Way, 7 Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia.  For more details, click here.
