Blue Zones

The Blue Zones Project® is a community well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks. By helping people live longer, better through behavior change, communities can lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, and boost national recognition as a great place to live, work, and play.

Its mission is to lead and ignite community-by-community well-being transformation, where people live and work together in Blue Zones Communities for a better life.

When enough people and organizations pledge and make simple but powerful changes to their surroundings, the town can become a certified Blue Zones Community®. Becoming a certified Blue Zones Community means everyone in your town can share the benefits of living in a place where well-being is a way of life - and enjoy national recognition as a great place to live, work and play.

By taking an environmental approach to well-being improvement, we have an opportunity to create real change in communities. This kind of change sparks people’s deepest desires to live well while giving them the tools to do so.

It’s time to start dreaming about a well-being way of life, and picture the best possible version of yourself and the community you call home. With your support, Blue Zones Project can help make this dream a reality.

Small changes to your environment over time can have a big impact on your well-being and your community’s for many years to come.
