Blue Zones Project Partnership & Walking School Bus

Blue Zones logo

The environment we create for our students and young people has an impact on their daily lives.  That environment will serve as the standard by which they will live out their future-it will become their “norm.” As educators and administrators we’re not only imparting knowledge on a daily basis, we are also influencing lifestyle choices the students will emulate for years to come. The Blue Zones® School Pledge uses evidence- and theory- based strategies to help administrators optimize the school environment in order to nudge students toward healthier choices. The pledge encourages students to eat better, move more, and reduce sedentary time, all while increasing healthy social interactions and mindfulness about well-being.  It also introduces programs that schools can implement to promote both physical and emotional health in students.

Blue Zones® School Benefits include:

  1. Recognition for helping your community reach Blue Zones® Community certification
  2. Opportunity to join leading schools in the national trend toward healthier education
  3. Higher test scores as a result of healthier, happier students
  4. Official designation and national recognition as a Blue Zones® School
