Click here to view an interview of Dr. Al Power, geriatrician, and Dr. Emi Kyota, environmental gerontologist, as they discuss their new project called, An Innovative Approach to Global Aging: Creating a resilient community for all. The suggestion within this project is that an essential part of resilience in communities is to create environments where the presence and perspective of older adults is seen as a normal and valued.
The innovation of this project is a part of the Rockefeller Bellagio Center. The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center’s mission is to promote innovation and identify impact-oriented solutions to critical global problems. The Center, through conferences and residency programs, supports the work of scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners who share in the Foundation’s pioneering mission to “promote the well-being of humanity.”
