Come discover Blue Zones Project’s® unique, systemic approach to improving well-being – focusing on our “life radius.” By optimizing the settings where we routinely spend our time such as worksites, school, 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.
