Join us tomorrow, Sept 27, 7:00-9:30pm at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum where AARP and Uber will host a roundtable event on how older residents can harness new technology to transform how they live, work, travel and play. Hear from Jeff Johnson, Director for AARP Florida, Dr. Kathy Black, Professor of Aging Studies and Social Work at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee; and Stephanie Smith, Public Policy Director for Uber Florida.
The event will center on how longer life spans are disrupting #aging and transforming our society, and how #ridesharing has changed #mobility within communities.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register online: http://tinyurl.com/hety2dv or via phone at 877.926.8300
With over one billion motor vehicles on the roads around the globe, it sometimes seems as if life cannot exist even one day without cars. #CarFreeDay, is just that, one day a year, set aside to encourage people to try and avoid using cars and instead, try #cycling, #walking or using #publictransport. We challenge you to see what life would be like if you were less dependent on a car and instead used alternative modes of transportation today. #AgeFriendly#Transportation
