Age-Friendly Boston Initiative
The Age-Friendly Boston Initiative is an ongoing close partnership between the City of Boston and the Center for Social and Demographic Research on Aging. Launched in 2014, the Initiative is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of Boston's residents. Through this close academic-governmental collaboration, the Center for Social and Demographic Research on Aging contributes to the planning, methodology, community engagement, and data collection and analysis, and evaluation of the Initiative.
To date, the Center for Social and Demographic Research on Aging with the City of Boston released the Age-friendly Boston Action Plan (2017), graduated 25 students over the age of 50 from the first Senior Civic Academy (2018) and continues to hold annual Academies, looked at older workers in Boston through an age-friendly lens, and has held multiple community engagement events.
