We should make earth better than a blue zone. A blue zone is, Blue Zone is concept used to identify a demographic and/or geographic area of the world where people live measurably longer lives, as described in Dan Buettner's book, "The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from people who lived the longest." -wikipedia I think permaculture can help make earth a blue zone, then humans could make something better than permaculture, then make something like a super blue zone. super duper green zone maybe? who knows


This video explains what blue zones are. It also taught me the phrase procreative success, awesome

Hi Brenda. Longer as in above average life spans. Blue zones have a higher number of centenarians. Also, these areas are examples of a good life design. It's instructive at least. My grandma is 91 and after I saw the blue zone video I observed that she lives her life in a very similar fashion to blue zone areas. Like permaculture, its just making changes to the environment that influence our habits. Im also bringing blue zones up because I think that similar movements like longevity, permaculture, blue zones, preppers, will spread and eventually merge.
