Creating Inclusive Cities
San Diego is facing an ongoing boom of new older adults. By 2030, the population of adults 65 and older will have doubled in just 10 years. To better support this demographic shift, The San Diego Foundation is working directly with local municipalities to implement policies and programs that incorporate the needs of older adults. To date, our Age-Friendly Communities Program has facilitated the membership of the County of San Diego and the cities of Chula Vista, La Mesa and San Diego to the World Health Organization’s Global Network for Age-Friendly Cities, and we are continuing to bring new cities into the fold each year.
