15 May every year: Highlighting the importance of families as basic units of society.

International Day of Families was brought about by the United Nations Programme on the Family and will stress the importance of having healthy and happy relationships with your relatives.

Families are the ‘basic core’ of our society – we are born into them and some of the most important developing years of our lives are spent growing up with our families.

But every family life is different and the UN Family Programme recognises this.  Just as we have lots of different cultures, we also have different ways people interact with each other depending on where they’re from.

The human towers (“castells” in Catalan) are built traditionally in festivities and competitions in Catalonia, Spain. At these events each team (“colla”) builds and dismantles several human towers, this festival counts more than 200 years in the country . For their success, a crowded and stunning base of dozens of people needs to be previously perfectly set up.

The youngest and the weakest are the top of the tower, while the heavier members compose the base. Each tower consists of two or three levels, while the audience jostling and pushes forward, helping in this way the creation of a stable human tower.

Hundreds of men, women and children are divided into groups of 100-500 people and compete to create the tallest human towers. The youngest and the weakest are the top of the tower, while the heavier members compose the base.

More than 20000 people gather each year to catch a glimpse of the competition. The higher the tower of a team, the more are the points. The strategy is to put young members at the top and heavy aged people at base.
