Speaking of the seas, the CMAS wants to turn the spotlight also on a social emergency. To this aim, it was launched the idea to establish, with the cooperation of local authorities and associations, a training course for underwater activities for migrants of various nationalities, who flee from their countries and the war. A first pilot course will be set up at the S. Caterina Institute in Amendola (Salerno), an institute that stands out for projects on international cooperation and solidarity. A project through which the world federation wants to turn the sea from the scenario of a nightmare, in which migrants have risked losing their life, into a redemption opportunity through an active role in the culture and archaeology, the reopening of an interethnic comparison of great social value.

«Culture and sport are able to speak a universal language that can unite all and break down barriers and walls that separate us», argued the city major, «sea is not an enemy, but a friend, a place that links different cultures. Our city, institutions and schools stand out for integration solidarity and cooperation».
