Emi Kiyota, PhD, founder and director of Ibasho, an organization that facilitates the co-creation with elders of socially integrated, sustainable communities that value their elders, will explore how she works to create socially integrated and resilient cities where elders are engaged and able to actively participate in their communities.

-View elders as catalyst to strengthen social capital and make their communities more resilient;
