September’s Community Forum: After Peak Oil: How Do We Transition?

After Oil: How do we Transition?

It’s been well documented that the world is quickly running out of oil.

But what happens after the oil is gone?

Planning for this future is what “Transition” is all about. We’ll be joined by two local leaders on the subject, Derik Andreoli, founder of Energy Transitions Northwest and Leo Brodie of Sustainable Northeast Seattle for a discussion about Transition and Peak Oil.

Learn more about Peak Oil and its potential impact on cities, transportation and the economy and what is or is not being done locally to address these issues.

Join Sustainable West Seattle Monday, September 20, for this months’ Community Forum in the Senior Center of West Seattle, 4217 SW Oregon St. (on the south side or Oregon immediately east of California Avenue SW intersection).  Come at 6:30 pm to socialize, the forum starts at 7:00 pm. Read more

‘Aging Your Way’ Workshop @ Fauntleroy Church

The Healthy Aging Partnership (HAP) is pleased to present an “Aging Your Way” workshop at the Fauntleroy Church, 9140 California Ave SW, Thursday, September 23, from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm.  Food and beverages will be available during the workshop.

This workshop is free and open to the public, intended specifically for adults age 55+.   Come learn from experts about healthy living, emergency preparedness, lifelong learning, and civic engagement.

It’s important to think and plan ahead – for your own future. If you don’t, who will? This is especially true if you care about staying in your own community as you age and want to feel confident that your physical, mental and social needs will be met.

Be clear – existing resources, both local and federal, won’t meet the needs of the rapidly growing number of older adults in this country. Let your voice be heard, your needs be known and your plans be implemented. Please join us!

Also learn about grant funding available for teams of older adults that want to make Aging at Home a reality in their own communities. To register for this free event, click here or call 877-926-8300.

Information on HAP’s Aging at Home Initiative and the grant application are available at www.4elders.org.

RSVP: By September 20, visit www.seniorservices.org, click on Aging Your Way, or call 206-727-6206, or email joanned@seniorservices.org.
