The Blue Zones Story

In 2004, Blue Zones founder Dan Buettner teamed with National Geographic, the National Institute on Aging, and the world’s best longevity researchers to identify pockets around the world where people lived measurably better, longer. In these blue zones (Sardinia, Italy; Ikaria, Greece; Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica; Seventh-Day Adventists, Loma Linda, California; Okinawa, Japan) they learned that people reach age 100 at rates 10 times greater than in the United States. Using the wisdom from the original blue zones, we help people live better, longer through community transformation programs that lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, and boost national recognition as great places to live, work, and play.
