Event:

That was b2ORG with TV journalist Christof Lang

2018/06/08

For the first meeting of the event series „b2ORG - small circle talks with added value“ in 2018 the internationally operating relief organization humedica welcomed socially engaged executives to a networking and information exchange. Highlight of the evening was the presentation of TV journalist Christof Lang speaking about the „role and task of the media in the times of Fake News“.

„People are more than ever longing for trustworthiness“, Christof Lang closed his analysis of the current role of the media. „This exactly is the duty of news platforms: to give people back the trust in reporting.“ The head of the RTL-Landesstudio Süd in Munich then explained in detail the currently prevailing media use to the 25 guests in the humedica headquarters and deduced the following recommendations for action: „It is vital to examine and present news from the perspective of the spectators. Everything else passes their reality. Media coverage by elites for broad masses works no more - plain and simple. We have to be authentic. The same applies for relief organisations such as humedica.“

For several years now journalist teams of Christof Lang accompany humedica interventions on a regular basis. Thus they create a media platform for worldwide crises – most recently for the tornado Haiyan in the Philippines and the refugee relief intervention in the Balkans.

In order to professionalise these interventions of the internationally operating organization even further, humedica now has taken on the certificaton as Emergency Medical Team (EMT) by the World Health Organization. Thassilo Görgen reported on the current state of the certification process and its importance for the relief organization.

He was supported by his colleague Heinke Rauscher, who has made her private vacation into a challenge: in 16 legs she crossed the Pyrenees on her mountain bike and thus covered not only 950 road kilo meters, but also nearly 27.000 meters of altitude difference. The Pyrenees Mountain Bike Challenge was initiated to collect donations to finance the EMT certification.
