Blue Zones Project helps people improve their well-being and the well-being of their friends, family, and neighborhood by making changes to the places where people spend the most time. We work with workplaces, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based and civic organizations, and local governments to make healthy choices easier.
Blue Zones Project is based on research from a fifteen-year longevity study coupled with findings documented in National Geographic explorer Dan Buettner's New York Times best-seller, The Blue Zones: 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.
