Statewide Convening – Innovation Can’t Wait

June 24, July 8, July 22, and August 5 2:00 – 3:30 PT on Zoom

The village movement must embrace innovation to succeed. In lieu of a face-to-face convening, we held a statewide Innovation Can’t Wait Series. This online conference addressed the opportunities and challenges presented by Covid 19 and equipped local villages with tools, technologies and strategies to ensure older Californians are cared for during extended periods of physical distancing. Whether it’s a viral pandemic or California wildfires, villages were built for this moment.
