Sponsored by HMSA in Hawai‘i, Blue Zones Project is a community-led well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks.
Established in 2010, Blue Zones Project is inspired by Dan Buettner, a National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best-selling author who identified five regions of the world—or Blue Zones—with the highest concentration of people living to 100 years or older.
Blue Zones Project incorporates Buettner’s findings and works with cities to implement policies and programs that will move a community toward optimal health and well-being. Currently, 42 communities in nine states have joined Blue Zones Project, impacting more than 3.3 million Americans nationwide.
The movement includes three beach cities in California; 15 cities in Iowa; Albert Lea, Minnesota; the city of Fort Worth; and communities in Southwest Florida, Hawai‘i, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Wisconsin. Blue Zones Project is a division of Sharecare.
In January 2017, Central Maui was named a Blue Zones Project demonstration site, receiving support from national experts to implement a comprehensive, evidence-based plan for improving community well-being.
