It was a great three days at the lake with presentations, visits to regional agencies, online guests, culture, sports and lots of fun, personal discussions and conversations.
This year's Lectures by the Lake seminar at Berzdorfer See was very well received by all participants.
After arrival by train from Berlin, cycling to Poland for lunch. The first online guest in the program in the afternoon was Oliver von Quast, CEO of Direct Charge GmbH. Oliver explained the students the business concept of his company, a Berlin start-up in the field of e-mobility. During the lecture, Oliver was able to explain questions of the students both in the seminar room and online and thus contributed to a better understanding of the field of renewable energies and e-mobility in Germany. Then it was out of the seminar room and onto the water. Stand-up paddle and kayak were the activities, which were a lot of fun for everyone. After such an active day, everyone was hungry of course. The barbecue came just right and was great to finish the day.
The second day consisted of a visit to the regional development agency ENO and a lot of culture. ENO, the agency responsible for the economic and structural development of the district, gave the students a very detailed insight into the current situation, the challenges but also the opportunities that this region offers young people and companies.
The afternoon was entirely dedicated to culture. After lunch in a historic restaurant, the program continued with culture and history. A guided tour through the historic city of Görlitz impressed all students. The barbecue in the evening was then a “co-production” of all students.
The third day started after breakfast (which all students prepared again together) with a round of talks and individual meetings on the topics of the course, the master's theses and assignments, before we went to the beach: Beach Volleyball & Beach Soccer!
All in all a great event, which was unfortunately much too short. Thanks to all participants for the effort and the help here and there: Great teamwork! Everyone is looking forward to the next event....
