Tag: Rettungsdienst

Generation Y

Earlier this week IĀ travelled to Hamburg, a great city in the far north of Germany, with a rich history of trade and some beautiful views (especially in the snow), even if the general attitude of the folk there can be rather cool and direct…consider yourself warned šŸ™‚

IMG_6323There was a lot to see and do, including some very early Porsche experimental vehicles in the Prototyp Museum, strolling along the Reeperbahn, and finding out that apparently the fifth member of The Beatles was a police van. Who knew?

Hamburg, being a hanseatic city, thrived and thrives on trade through its port, which it has been relying uponĀ for centuries. Knowledge, experience and wisdom has continually been passed down from one generation to the next in a move to keep the city, and the trade, at the top of its game.

What has that got to do with Paramedic Services, I hear you ask? And for the more established adults amongst you, dear readers, do I detect a hint of frustrations at us Young ‘uns, with all their Facetagram, Twitspace, Blogtube, glued to their screens all day and night? And for fellow Young ‘uns, I can hear your sighs when you think about those old guys who just don’t get what the net is all about.

Well, earlier this week I attended the 1. Zukunftsforum Rettungsdienst, the 1. Future Forum for Paramedic Services in Hamburg, to talk about just that: Generation Y – our expectations and demands.

Keep your eyes peeled for next weeks post…
