Sustainability created in Crete


Crete is the sustainable destination of the past and of the future.


The island birthplace of Zeus, Crete, nestled between Europe, Africa and the Middle East is rich with mythology, gastronomy, music, art, agriculture and one of the first civilisations, the Minoans. These days many rural Cretan villages, thrive on a sustainable lifestyle of barter and exchange with a strong connection with the land. ESA is thrilled to be collaborating with Cretan Urban Adventures to co-create a truly immersive sustainability experience which will make visitors leave with a richer connection with LIFE!
