I really like what the Blue Zone Project does: it’s a public health initiative headed by Beach Cities Health District, to make life better in our local communities. Blue Zone asks local South Bay residents to think about recycling, green-living, and the impact their actions and day-to-day living has on the environment and those around them.
The throw events and campaigns around the Beach Cities, and have had a large impact on Hermosa Beach in particular. For instance, they are holding a workshop on January 18th, 2014 called Power of Purpose at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center.
The workshop will be all about how purpose relates to our personal values, beliefs, and priorities and will be run by Kathleen Terry of Leadership Manhattan Beach and Leadership Redondo, and president of the Manhattan Beach Rotary Club.
