Berlin – Los Angeles city partnership: The “Next Generation” fire department youth exchange


In the context of the long-standing exchange between fire departments in Berlin and Los Angeles, 10 young people taking part in the “Next Generation” project and two accompanying adults visited our partner city for 17 days in July. They stayed with fire department families in Los Angeles and met with Councilman LaBonge, Consul General Fischer, and the Berlin-L.A. Sister City Committee. A reciprocal visit to Berlin by young people from Los Angeles is planned for 2015.

You can read an online journal about the visit here. More information is also available on the website of the German consulate general.
