Age, Engage
Airs Thursday, June 27, 7 p.m.

In a vibrant, age-friendly community, people say “YES” to life. They engage in service to the community and have opportunities for meaningful work and relationships.

In this Imagine KC we look at programs and activities that keep older adults engaged in our communities in significant ways. We’ll meet individuals who have found their “second act” through volunteering, paid employment and other activities, and learn about the organizations that help older adults stay involved.

The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) and Kansas City Public Television (KCPT) created Imagine KC to raise awareness of and present solutions to the economic, social and environmental challenges facing the Kansas City region.

Over the past three years, MARC and KCPT have co-produced and aired 12 episodes of Imagine KC, providing reliable information about issues and ideas to encourage informed decision making and help our communities plan for a vibrant, connected and green future.

On June 27, 2013, we will continue that tradition with a new episode, this time focused on the social and civic engagement of older adults. Using video footage from throughout the region, graphics, expert interviews and viewer feedback, the program will continue helping the region envision its future.
