Striving to promote active aging, intergenerational connection, and social inclusion.
Age-Friendly Honolulu, a project of the UH Center on Aging, changes mindsets about aging by empowering kupuna, promoting intergenerational engagement, and supporting accessibility and inclusion for all. It is a public/private initiative, collaborating with both city departments and community organizations, and a member of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and AARP National’s Network of Age-Friendly Communities.
On October 11th, 2018, the Age-Friendly Honolulu Initiative celebrated a milestone event, Mayor Caldwell’s signing of Bill 54 (2018), Relating to Age-Friendly Honolulu. The passage of this ordinance signifies a commitment by the City and County of Honolulu to be “age-friendly”.
The Hawaiʻi Public Health Institute partners with Age-Friendly Honolulu to meaningfully engage and activate community organizations to build communities that support all generations.
