​Help shape the future for older adults and individuals with disabilities in Pierce County!

Aging into the Future: Pierce County 2020-2030 will inform, challenge and inspire the audience to look toward how we can prepare Pierce County (government, businesses, non-profits, faith communities, etc.) for a future when over 25% of our residents will be older adults. Shown in an interactive and innovative format called "PechaKucha", these presentations offer a glimpse into the possibilities of what the future may hold.

This conference is intended for seniors, individuals with disabilities, caregivers, families, service providers, business owners, and others who are interested in how aging affects our future. The program will include speakers on eight different topics: Infrastructure, Transportation, Long Term Health, Personal Wellness, Housing, Legislation, Threats to Independence, and Economics. Our audience will have generous opportunities to provide feedback, suggestions and additional comments throughout.

PechaKucha (meaning “chit-chat” and pronouced Pe-Cha-Ku-Cha) is the art of concise presentations. Now in over 1,000 cities, the format was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

You’ve heard the phrase “death by PowerPoint.” This isn’t it. It’s actually the opposite! PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where we show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. Our presenters will use the images to poke and prod us, to inform and educate us, to inspire and challenge us. 

At our PechaKucha, we will have eight dynamic presentations with each one immediately followed by 5-10 survey questions. Each member of the audience will have portable keypads and respond with electronic voting. We’ll see the results immediately!
