Asheville Area Events

♦ Fraud Prevention

♦ What: Wiser-Together World Cafe – Transportation for All
When:  from 9:00 – Noon, Wednesday, October 11
Why: Part of making our community age-friendly is ensuring that as people age they can still get to where they need to go and connect with people that make life meaningful. On January 13, 2018, UniteWNC’s Silver to Gold Team and Code for Asheville will sponsor an event to “hack” our current transportation options to design possible approaches that are more age-friendly. We need you, your best ideas, and your creativity on October 11 to make that January event most productive!
In preparation for the January 13th Hackathon; on October 11, you are invited to help clarify the user’s voice, the best aspects of what now exists, and the desired outcomes from new approaches we will begin to flesh out at the January 13 Hackathon.  On October 11, we’ll use the highly-effective and pleasant World Cafe process to imagine transportation that works for all people as they age and identify what needs to be included and addressed.
Also, please read these 2 articles before coming.
If you have other relevant articles, books or links, please share them ahead of time.  They will be posted on our website below.
