Blue Zones experts will collaborate with leaders to assess readiness and build a plan for change. During this period we will: Educate and mobilize local leaders and residents, evaluate the community’s current state of well-being, identify the highest priority strengths, challenges and opportunities, and produce and present a plan for community transformation.
Blue Zones engages individual community members through online health and well-being assessments, the True Vitality® Test and True Happiness® Test. All are available for free to all community members as part of the program. These customized online tools are designed to help raise individual awareness surrounding personal health and well-being, with the goal of increasing overall life expectancy.
The Blue Zones Activate team is comprised of a range of inspirational, innovative community transformation and well-being experts.
“In an age when poor health seems so intractable, you’ve taken this community from a place of resignation to a place of hope.”

Residents of the original blue zones regions live in very different parts of the world. Yet they have nine commonalities that lead to longer, healthier lives.
