Ceutí is a municipality of 10.34 km2, situated in the Southeast of Spain, in the Region of Murcia. Despite its small size, Ceutí has been a cultural reference point during the last 15 years and active in EU projects.
During the last years, this municipality is paying special attention to health promotion: It has adhered to the National Strategy for the Promotion of Health of the Ministry of Health in Madrid, whose main objective is that our population gain years of good health. Spanish Life Expectancy is one of the highest in the world (82.1 years), but people don’t reach high ages with a very good health condition (life expectancy with good health is 61.5 years for men and 59.4 years for women), so the strategy is based on preventive measures. Prevention was also one of the basis for the Gruntvig project “Power To Resist” in which Ceutí participated, which pursued to make adults aware of the importance of not being so permissive with children starting drinking alcohol at an early age, of the power of the mirroring effect and looked for a common message to transmit adults (parents and role models).
