The Learning Network unites Active Aging and Smart Growth principles and practices

What is Smart Growth?

Smart Growth takes place when communities offer people of varying age, wealth and physical ability a range of safe, affordable, convenient choices where they live and how they get around.

What is Active Aging?

Active Aging takes place when communities offer older adults a variety of structured and unstructured physical activities in which they can participate.
