AUGUSTA — Officials and stakeholders dedicated to tackling the issues facing Maine’s rapidly growing aging population will gather in Augusta next month.

The 2nd annual Maine Summit on Aging will be held at the Civic Center on Sept. 15.

The event aims to be a forum for sharing ideas about how to create an “age friendly” Maine. Organizers say that participants will learn tools and ideas that they can bring back to their communities in Maine, which has the oldest population in the country.

Garrett Martin, executive director of the Maine Center for Economic Policy, will deliver the keynote address on “Democrats, Work and Maine’s Faltering Economy.”

The summit will also highlight issues like housing, transportation and home care workers.
