The 16th Mediterranean Gathering and the 5th Gathering of Southern Europe of the International Scout and Guide Fellowship were held in October 2018 in Athens. Under the title "Mediterranean, The Odyssey of a Sea", we were informed of the serious pollution problem affecting our sea and reflected on what each could do on a daily basis to stop, or at least reduce, the risks which threaten the Mediterranean with total destruction. Pollution, of course, but we can not help but think of the thousands of men, women, children from far-off countries of Asia, Africa who drowned while trying to reach Europe hoping to find a better life. But we can not help but link "Mediterranean, the Odyssey of the sea" to the operation "Mare Nostrum".
