Aging for the Common Good

© istock.com/Angelina Bambina

We’re celebrating four years of Aging for the Common Good, our writing group program/think tank/community of practice. The group just started another six-week exploration, this one on the theme of “generativity.”


You might wonder, What does aging have to do with sacred/civic placemaking?


As Sympara helps communities reimagine underutilized religious properties for social impact, we engage congregations made up primarily of older people. We believe they are the pioneers of a movement to reinvent not just sacred space but spiritual community. So we recognize how crucial it is to evoke the gifts of older people as we travel together toward more just, equitable and sustainable communities.
