Age-Friendly Bowling Green


The Age-Friendly Bowling Green initiative seeks to make Bowling Green, KY a better place to grow old by promoting an "age-in-everything" lens across all aspects of city life. This hands-on community initiative asks the city's public agencies, businesses, cultural, educational and religious institutions, community groups, and individuals to consider how changes to policy and practice can create a city more inclusive of older adults and more sensitive to their needs.

This initiative is a part of the World Health Organization's Age-friendly Cities project and is a collaborative effort led by WKU Aging and the City of Bowling Green, KY.

Join your neighbors in conducting a baseline assessment of age-friendliness, developing an action plan and identifying indicators to monitor over time.
