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.
I had the pleasure of representing AustinUP at the Population Health Summit, presented earlier this month by Health Tech Austin…
We’re excited to report that AustinUP has joined the Encore Network, which is part of Encore.org, an organization that “innovates new ideas and models to leverage the skills and talents of experienced adults to improve communities and the world.”
In this, AustinUP’s third annual Aging & Innovation Summit, we will explore themes of equity, diversity and intergenerational community engagement with a goal of expanding aging innovation in Austin. We welcome entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, city leaders, business leaders, nonprofits, older adults, caregivers and individuals interested in the aging conversation.
