Blue Zones Project is a proven approach to improving the well-being of entire cities by making healthier choices easier for everyone. When the entire community participates – from employers and schools to restaurants and grocery stores – small changes contribute to huge benefits for all: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and a higher quality of life.
Based on our identification and research of the world’s longest-lived cultures in the blue zones — rare longevity hotspots where people thrive into their 100s — we empower people and entire communities to live better and longer.
Residents of the blue zones live in very different parts of the world. Yet they have nine commonalities that lead to longer, healthier, happier lives.
In our work building healthier, stronger communities, we focus on a “Life Radius,” or the area close to home where we spend 90 percent of our lives.
Be part of the movement that’s transforming the well-being of Jacksonville. Together, we can make our community a better place to live, work, learn, and play. Connect your company, school, club, group, or civic organization to the Blue Zones community well-being transformation.
This test, based on the leading scientific research into well-being, will help you improve your environment to maximize your happiness.
