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.

About Keynote Speaker Dan Buettner

Dan Buettner is an explorer, New York Times bestselling author and National Geographic Fellow.  His New York Times Sunday Magazine article The Island Where People Forget to Die, was the second most popular article of 2012. Dan’s National Geographic cover story on longevity, The Secrets of Living Longer was one of the top-selling issues in magazine’s history and a made him a finalist for a National Magazine Award.

His books The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest and Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way appeared on many best seller lists and were both featured on Oprah and other US and international media.

Dan Buettner’s colossal research effort on happiness found four locations around the world (“Blue Zones”) with the highest reported well‐being. In the societies he visits, it’s no coincidence that the way people interact with each other, shed stress, nourish their bodies, and view their world yields more happiness and good years of life.

Utilizing this data, Dan ultimately founded a company that puts the world’s best practices in longevity and well-being to work in people’s lives. In 2009, he partnered with AARP to apply the principles of The Blue Zones to Albert Lea, Minnesota and successfully raised life expectancy and lowered health care costs by some 40%. Writing in Newsweek, Harvard University’s Walter Willet called the results “stunning.”

Using National Geographic photography and video, Dan’s interactive presentations show you how to live longer, how to be happy and how to be healthy by optimizing your lifestyle and surroundings.
