Keynote Speaker

Keynote Speaker

Join us at the Opening General Session during the 2018 ACTFL Convention and World Languages Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Friday, November 16 at 8:30 a.m. where Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow, will be our keynote speaker. Buettner is an explorer, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author. He discovered the five places in the world – dubbed Blue Zones – where people live the longest, healthiest lives.

Buettner now works in partnership with municipal governments, large employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects in communities, workplaces, and universities. Blue Zones Projects are well-being initiatives that apply lessons from the Blue Zones to entire communities by focusing on changes to the local environment, public policy, and social networks. The program has dramatically improved the health of more than 5 million Americans to date.
