Crete loves life is a public with music and a poetry competition

First organized in 2018 it was repeated in 2019 … but not in 2020 due to covid
… in 2021 we return back…more details in May!

Crete loves life” is more than  a competition or a concert. The aim of the “Crete loves life” event is to raise awareness about 4 threats endangering the life of Cretans on a permanent basis. They are:

  • car accidents
  • over-consumption of alcohol by kids and teenagers
  •  the use of guns, especially in social gatherings and
  •  passive smoking

We raise awareness about the tragic results of ignoring road traffic rules, disregarding traffic lights and non-respecting other drivers, exceeding speed limits etc. The over-consumption of alcohol by teenagers, at family social and school gatherings, along with the harmful consequences of indoor smoking to the health of non-smokers. This is true especially for vulnerable groups like pregnant women, kids, people suffering from serious heart diseases, or those with asthma and other breathing problems and persons with sensitive immune system etc.

PARTICIPATION TO THESE EVENTS IS ALWAYS FREE!
