Part of making our community age-friendly is ensuring that as people age they can still get to where they need to go and connect with people that make life meaningful. In January, UniteWNC and Code for Asheville will sponsor an event to "hack" our current transportation options to design possible solutions that are more age-friendly.
In preparation for that, on October 11, you are invited to help clarify the user voice, the problem(s) to solve, and the desired outcomes from that hackathon. We'll imagine transportation that works for all people as they age and identify what needs to be included and addressed. We need you, your best ideas, and your creativity!
Please join us from 9-Noon, October 11 at Land of Sky.
