With your help, Blue Zones will conduct a structured exploration of our community to build a plan for change. More information about the Blue Zones Pierce County community assessment is available here.
Q: What is Blue Zones®?
Blue Zones is a community-wide well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier. We do this by encouraging sustainable changes in the built environment, food environment, and social networks, often suggesting policy changes throughout a community including such places as worksites, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based communities, convenience stores and neighborhoods. By helping people live longer and better by making the healthy choice the easy choice, communities can lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, access grants and funding available locally and nationally, and enjoy a higher quality of life as they live, work, learn, worship and grow. The program is based on principles identified during an ongoing twenty-year worldwide longevity study commissioned by National Geographic, and detailed in the New York Times best-seller, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, and The Blue Zones Solution by Dan Buettner.

We hope to see you via Zoom on the 27th!
