Blue Zones is an organization that was founded by adventurer and author Dan Buettner who made a connection between certain sites in the world where a higher than usual number of people lived longer than average. Buettner termed these sites Blue Zones and sought out to study the reasons behind their happiness and longevity.
As a result, Blue Zones’ work is “rooted in our research and identification of the world’s longest-lived cultures and most extraordinary populations.” Among external partnerships, the organization also shares recipes, lifestyle tips, among other things that will “empower everyone, everywhere to live longer, better.”
Blue Zones advocates for routine natural movement, plant-slant diets, fostering relationships with people, and nourishing a strong sense of purpose.
