There are places around the world called blue zones where entire communities live significantly longer, healthier, and more active lives. Dan Buettner led a National Geographic study to identify the commonalities across these blue zones areas that have led to their longevity and vitality. In more recent years, 48 communities like ours have started on a journey to become a Blue Zones Community®, and we’d like our community to be next.
This transformation is a multi-year, multi-disciplinary effort that involves the entire community – policymakers, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, government, businesses, faith-based organizations, and individuals – and it only works if key leaders get behind it.
