Few of us have the option of designing our neighborhood or choosing our neighbors. We live in neighborhoods which are, for the most part, very good at guarding our privacy and dismal at fostering our sense of belonging and community. Instead of scrap the whole 80-year experiment in suburban living and start over, how might we retrofit our neighborhoods?

This program will focus on practical steps you can take to reimagine your neighborhood so that it nourishes intergenerational connections and supports aging in community. From simple steps — such as creating a listserv, forming a neighborhood watch, or starting a CSA — to ambitious undertakings — such as creating a common house, an eldercare home, and a community energy system — this creative, incremental approach can reinvent the existing suburban landscape, one neighborhood at a time.
