AustinUP is a community alliance committed to making Central Texas a place where older adults live full, engaged lives.
What we believe:
- We need to retire the word retired.
- As long as our hearts are beating, we must engage in the world around us.
- Older adults are an invaluable community resource, waiting to be tapped.
Our vision is to create a region that responds to aging as a dynamic rather than a stagnant force. We are all aging, all the time. And we want to make Central Texas a place that supports each of us, at every age.
Because our community is changing – and it’s not just how you think.
As we reflect on this past year, we are proud of our activities and accomplishments. We also are extremely grateful to our AustinUP community, as well as our sponsors and business members.
Our 2019 ATX Aging & Innovation Summit was our third and largest Summit, a gathering of 180+ people who were there to learn about aging-related innovation in Austin with a spotlight on equity, diversity and intergenerational community engagement. From the comments we heard at the Summit and via an online evaluation, the audience got what they wanted.
