“Youth that saves”. This is the meaning of “Jugend Rettet”, NGO founded in 2016 in Berlin by a group of young men with a single purpose: launch themselves on the open sea aboard a ship named Iuventa, in order to save those fleeing from Africa to Europe. Their dream is far from being easy to realise: in fact, despite the nobility of their plan, the young utopias need to come to terms with a harsh reality, and with policies failing to implement concrete aid plans in the Mediterranean.
