INTERNATIONAL SPEAKER

Inspired by the world's longest-lived cultures, this 90 minute presentation aims to introduce the concept of Blue Zones to Te Moana a Toi. Tony Buettner, Blue Zones International Spokesperson will share secrets discovered from rare longevity hotspots around the world that could help our people in the Bay of Plenty live longer, more fulfilled lives. Blue Zones projects are being established all over the world and aim to transform communities into thriving places to live, work, eat, and play. 

"The Blue Zones Project helped our community set amazing, aggressive, and achievable strategies that moved the Public Health agenda further in 10 months than what I could have expected in 10 years."

- Lois Ahern, Director of Freeborn County Health, Albert Lea, MN

TOI ORA CHAMPION ON A MISSION

'After attending a Tumu Whakarae study tour in Hawaii earlier this year, I am excited to introduce the benefits of Blue Zones to Te Moana a Toi. Blue Zones has proven to transform whole of communities in a way that can support us to return to our indigenous systems, strengthen our collective spirit, and mobilise a shared vision of Toi Ora, flourishing peoples and places in Te Moana a Toi'
