Palm Springs is bringing together civic, business, and community leaders to work with Blue Zones. They are beginning a community assessment that would determine how to make it a healthier place to live, work, grow up, and grow old.


Blue Zones is the proven innovator for improving the well-being of large populations, with remarkable success in businesses, cities, and states across America.

In this phase, Blue Zones global experts are performing a Readiness Assessment, a structured exploration of Palm Springs. They are working with our local community leaders and organizations to learn and assess the state of our well-being. Becoming a Blue Zones Community is a three-phase process, and the Readiness Assessment is the first step.
