Blue Zone Project

Greater Health and Well-being in Hawaii

We are part of a movement supporting health and wholeness for ourselves, our community and our state. By joining together to apply nine pathways (Power 9) that enhance living longer and thriving, we are shaping our future well-being.

Blue Zones Project by Healthways

A Blue Zones Community® is an area in which citizens, schools, employers, restaurants, grocery stores, and community leaders have come together to optimize residents’ longevity and well-being. Blue Zones Project® by Healthways takes a systematic, environmental approach to identifying and creating policies and programs that support community transformation. 
Blue Zones Project is a community well-being improvement initiative designed to change the way people experience the world around them. By impacting environment, policy, and social networks, Blue Zones Project makes healthy choices easier. As a result, people can live longer, better, and communities can lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, and boost national recognition as a great place to live, work, and play.

Unity Windward:  A Certified Blue Zones Worksite

Our six-stage model lowers absenteeism and healthcare costs, increases productivity, and builds a more engaged and focused workforce.
