Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Cristo – Nit de Sant Joan (The night of San Juan )

Six months after Christmas is celebrated the arrival of the summer solstice during the shortest night of the year. The feast of St. Juan Bautista is celebrated that day, June 24.

June 24th was the birth of San Juan. Ever since that night was identified as the night of San Juan, which coincides with the summer solstice and has inherited a number of practices, rituals, traditions and customs. Ever since the June 24 date is celebrated the birth of John the Baptist.

In the Night of San Juan is customary to give a walk on fire. Devotees prepare roads embers of two meters long and walk barefoot on them without damage. The celebration is accompanied with dances, meals and drinks.

> The big star of the night of San Juan is the fire, aiming not only to pay tribute to the sun, but also purify the sins of man.

> At dawn on June 24 it is believed that any water is pure and healing and provides protection.

> Religious people pray to attract soil fertility and their own.
