Parks & Outdoor Spaces: A Catalyst for Age-Friendly/Livable Communities
Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM
Access to parks and natural areas has been shown to reduce stress, improve coping abilities, lessen social isolation, enhance relationship skills and improve cognitive function. Parks are spaces that build community pride, bring people together, and increase civic engagement and the sense of belonging regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion or income.
Join AARP Rhode Island and Age-Friendly Rhode Island on Wednesday, July 28 at 10 a.m. for this FREE virtual webinar as we welcome Terrence Gray, Acting Director of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM).
