  • Blue Zones: Secrets of a Long Life

    To find the path to long life and health, Dan Buettner and his team study the world’s “Blue Zones,” communities whose elders live with vim and vigor to record-setting age. In his talk, he shares the 9 common diet and lifestyle habits – Power 9® – that keep them spry past age 100. What should you be doing to live a longer life? Dan Buettner debunks the most common myths and offers a science-backed blueprint for the average American to live another 12 quality years.

  • The Blue Zones of Happiness

    What makes us happy? Most people are misguided or just plain wrong. Living our best life involves optimizing how we evaluate our life, how we experience it from day to day and how to live out our purpose. Following the model he pioneered with Blue Zones of Longevity, Buettner worked with Gallup to identify the happiest regions of the happiest countries in the world and distilled their lessons. He also drew from data that represents 95% of the world’s population and a consensus of the world’s top experts to debunk some commonly believed myths. Using stunning National Geographic photography, Dan brings the stories and concepts to life, offering an evidenced-based, long-lasting strategy to set up your life to live your happiest life.

  • The Making of a Healthy City

    In 2009, Albert Lea, Minnesota, a statistically average American city, completed a one-year community health experiment that raised life expectancy by three years, trimmed a collective 12,000 pounds off waistlines and dropped healthcare costs of city workers by some 40% – and they’ve continued to sustain the results. Harvard’s Dr. Walter Willett called the results “stunning”. Hear how one typically unhealthy American city reversed the trend, re-shaped their environment to live longer, better, and boosted happiness. They got healthier without thinking about it.
