We enact policy that changes the environment for sustainable impact.

Policy change is a driving force behind Blue Zones Project transformation.

Optimizing the built environment and food, tobacco, and alcohol policies is a high-impact, cost-effective strategy to reduce chronic disease and raise well-being. While much of a healthy lifestyle is a result of personal choice, healthy changes on a policy level have a broad impact that influences personal choice across the community.
With this approach, individuals can see tangible transformation taking place in their lives: from the buildings they work in, to the streets and paths they navigate, to the foods available for them to buy and eat.
Blue Zones Project also addresses tobacco and alcohol policy. We work with sponsors and partners to define community priorities and champion changes that support those goals, from retail policy to smoke-free public spaces.
Progress becomes apparent in the community surroundings—at the individual and neighborhood level—ultimately creating a healthier culture in your city, which further grows support and enhances results.
For Certified Campuses, Blue Zones Project works with campus leadership to ensure tobacco and food policies, benefits, and well-being programming are aligned to improve health and well-being.
We've completely enhanced our quality of life. The impressive outcomes come as a direct result of Blue Zones Project resources and expertise coupled with local volunteers committed to sustaining our changes.

This is about making Fort Worth a better place. It’s a great tool for us in the city. It’s good for the neighborhoods. It’s a good crime fighter. People that are out and engaged and active, their neighborhoods are safer, they’re more engaged in the city. Children who are healthy learn better. And selfishly, for us, it’s a great economic development tool.
Betsy Price
Mayor - Fort Worth, TX
The resources and expertise of Blue Zones Project has motivated our community to put more positive changes in place in one year than we ever could have imagined. These are the kinds of policies and changes that won't be lost or reversed over time but will continue to impact lives in this community for many, many years.
