Blue Zones Project - Iowa City

Who We Are

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. 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.

What We Do

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. These tools are based on nine healthy lifestyle habits shared by the people living in the original Blue Zones? areas. Called the Power 9?, they help people live healthier and happier longer. These nine small, easy steps fit into a few categories and can be practiced anywhere. They include Moving Naturally, Right Outlook, Eating Wisely and Belonging. People in Blue Zones? areas have enjoyed greater well-being and longevity for generations?and now you can too!
