Star Tribune Highlights Ecumen’s Efforts To Make Communities More Age Friendly

Ecumen, the City of Apple Valley, Minn., and national and international business partners, have been working for the past two years on the issue of how to make communities more age friendly.

This week the “Vitalocity!” initiative convened a three-day workshop in Apple Valley to get specific about how to make age-friendliness a reality.  Ecumen’s partners in Vitalocity! are Kendal Corporation,a Pennsylvania-based senior services nonprofit company, and BusinessLab, a UK-based global strategy consultancy.

See Star Tribune Reporter Liz Sawyer’s story about the workshop, including an interview about the initiative with Ecumen CEO Kathryn Roberts, and Sawyer's follow-up story on specific steps Apple Valley could take to be more age friendly.
