DOCK2018 - a day without worries

On 20 May 2018, the DOCK2018 – Ein Tag ohne Sorgen (A Day Without Worries) was held for the first time for this purpose at the Hamburg Cruise Center HafenCity. The event was for people of all ages looking for a way to spend a day without worries together. The programme not only provided for basic needs, including for animals, but was also adjusted to the individual needs of the guests according to their age. The programme had been designed to allow the visitors to rest and relax in a pleasant atmosphere or to enjoy the wide-ranging entertainment programme.

More than 2500 visitors came. They talked about their everyday needs, many of them without a fixed abode, and how much they felt the event was a safe space. Because of the positive response to DOCK2018, the Karin und Walter Blüchert Gedächtnisstiftung will continue to organise a day without worries in 2019 after all. Every person matters!

No bletherin'. Anpacken!

No bletherin’. Anpacken! This was the theme of the meeting of representatives of foundations, aid organisations and companies on 2 June 2018 to start an intensive and productive dialogue. They met in a relaxed atmosphere on board of a former lightship and one of the largest European sailing boats – the “Atlantis” – as they sailed around Hamburg.

It was the aim of the event to provide charitable organisations with an opportunity to exchange ideas and ideas and to set up collaborations for future projects. Whilst cooking onshore together and social relationships strengthened, teams emerged sealing new and sustainable cooperations with a Hanseatic handshake at the end of an eventful day. The Karin und Walter Blüchert Gedächtnisstiftung will support each of these projects in detail and will also regularly hold meetings to bring them together again for exchange.
