AGE MY WAY: A one day hybrid event from AustinUP

Imagine an event that brings together community members, provides dynamic content for them, and then asks their input on how to make Austin a more Age-Friendly City, all while celebrating Older Americans Month. That's the premise behind Age My Way.


What we know

Central Texas continues to attract older adults in increasing numbers, yet it is a struggle for policy priorities, funding, and opportunities for older adults to keep up with the demand. Recognizing that older adults are an invaluable community resource, Central Texas should be a place that supports each of us at every age.

What we want to learn

With a focus on community progress through the Age-Friendly Austin plan, combined with a desire to gain valuable feedback from our older community members, AustinUP is asking for your participation as we plan this important event. Our event audience will include older adults and representatives from private and nonprofit sectors.

Attendees will hear from knowledgeable speakers in one-hour breakout sessions, designed to disseminate information while focusing on obtaining feedback from the participants on key topics:

  • Home Sweet Home: Should I stay or should I go?
  • Getting Down to Business: What makes me a repeat customer?
  • Technology Should Be Fun: Making tech work for you.
If you’re an older adult in the Austin area and you’re interested in helping make Austin a more Age-Friendly city, then this event is for you! You can register for the onsite event or select the virtual option. Either way, your input will make an important impact on the future of your community. Space will be limited, so we encourage you to register soon!

We need your support through event sponsorship

Here are some ways that you can make an impact toward a more Age-Friendly Austin.
  • Sponsor the Event. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available, and your participation includes valuable marketing benefits for your business or organization.  
  • Provide People Power. Do you have members or employees who would like to help us on the event day?
  • Fuel the Attendees. Would your business be able to provide lunch and other refreshments? Great “word of mouth” opportunity!
