Don’t Forget About Us: Exploring the Interests of Youth and Older Adult Populations in Honolulu’s Community and Urban Development

This presenter is part of the Livable Communities for All Ages panel.

Honolulu ranks as one of the nation’s worst cities for traffic and retains the distinction of having the highest pedestrian fatality rates for adults 65+. With a rapidly growing older adult population and an expanding multi-modal transportation system, Honolulu is at a pivotal point in our urban development. The Honolulu Walks project is a youth-led initiative that incorporates the unique perspectives of our bookend generations—older adults and youth—to share valuable insights with city planners, policy makers, and community members and promote safe, accessible, and enjoyable streets for all generations.
