Designing the Future: Gen X and Millennials in 2050 

By 2050, metropolitan Chicago's senior population is expected to double.  How will this demographic shift reshape our communities and the lifestyles of seniors and non-seniors alike?  How will aging in place be different for the seniors of tomorrow -- Gen X and Millennials -- than for seniors today?
CMAP, Enterprise Community Partners, and the Lifetime Communities Collaborative invite you to hear a panel of experts in technology, design, and development discuss how their fields are preparing for the “age wave,” and how seniors of every race, ethnicity, and income can live well in the coming decades.  This event is approved for 1.50 CM credits (via the American Planning Association).
