Multigenerational Planning

April 20, 2012

Demographic shifts in America are having a profound effect on communities. By 2040, the proportion of people over the age of 65 will top 20 percent, and people under that age of 18 will make up almost 23 percent of the population. As a result, the oldest and the youngest populations combined will make up almost half of all U.S. residents. Multigenerational Planning challenges organizations and individuals to consider how to plan and design sustainable and livable communities that will meet the needs of these similar, yet different populations.
