‘Blue Zones’ are coming to Riverside
RIVERSIDE – (INT) – A 2-year effort is being launched in the Arlanza district of Riverside to address local health and sustainability concerns.

Arlanza compromises a potential ‘blue zone’ identified as having populations living measurably longer, happier lives with lower rates of chronic diseases and a higher-than-average quality of life.

To make it happen, California Volunteers has been awarded a $1 million “Connecting Neighbors to Neighbors” grant to develop the resident-led effort.

Projects are coming in areas of connectivity, nutrition, movement, and climate that will help Arlanza residents learn how to achieve greater longevity and wellbeing.

More specifically, five sub-neighborhoods in the greater Arlanza area will develop projects leading to a “community action plan” with the goals of connecting neighbors, increasing volunteerism, and advocating for greater public health.
