Representatives of new Blue Zones Project approved entities gather at City Hall to be recognized by the City Council.

Blue Zones Project entered 2018 under full steam, as the well-being improvement initiative now counts more than 70,000 participants who have taken the Personal Pledge or attended Blue Zones Project activities.
