Blue Zones Project uses a unique, systemic approach to improve well-being by focusing on our "life radius." By optimizing the settings where we routinely spend our time - such as worksites, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based communities and neighborhoods - we make healthy choices easier and naturally adopt healthier behaviors together as a community. Blue Zones Project is based on principles identified during a ten-year worldwide longevity study commissioned by National Geographic and detailed in Dan Buettner's New York Times best-seller, The Blue Zones: 9 Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest.
From Sardinia, Italy to Okinawa, Japan to Loma Linda, California, people are living vibrant, active lives well into their hundreds. Dan Buettner calls these areas Blue Zones, and they're the inspiration behind his book, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest.
Check out Dan's TED Talk, where he shares the longevity secrets that spurred the creation of Blue Zones Project.
Blue Zones Project communities have seen tremendous well-being improvements, from $40 million+ in medical and productivity savings to personal stories of better health and outlook on life. With the help of our sponsors, Blue Zones Project has impacted more than three million lives in 45 communities in 10 states to date.
From discovering the power of purpose to reaping the benefits of moving naturally and eating wisely, Blue Zones Project community residents are experiencing the initiative's value every day.
Blue Zones Project works with schools, worksites, grocery stores, restaurants, and other community organizations to create sustainable change that positively impacts culture, performance, and financial savings.
