At this year's Lectures by the Lake, more than 130 students from the University of Europe for Applied Sciences and 30 groups presented their ideas on how to make the Upper Lusatia region more interesting for foreign professionals and create jobs for the local population. The ideas ranged from medicine and care to education and training as well as sports, tourism and digitalisation. The students recognised and addressed the challenges of the sociological demographic situation and structural change. Many of the international students from 12 countries saw special opportunities in the region, which is located in the triangle between Poland and the Czech Republic. They combined their applied theoretical knowledge from the course with many international case studies (also from their home countries) very well and came up with new ideas. The ideas developed on the basis of extensive research were presented to the ENo and Professor Ralf Iwan.
The competition was a great success with many innovative ideas being presented. The students were able to showcase their creativity and knowledge in a practical way. At the upcoming Lectures by the Lake seminars, new topics and practice-oriented tasks will certainly be assigned to the students on the topic of leadership. I hope this rephrased version is more interesting to read.
You can participate in Lectures by the Lake seminars by registering on the University of Europe for Applied Sciences website. The seminars are held at Lake Berzdorf and combine online teaching in the form of short tutorials with an innovative face-to-face format. The seminars provide workshops, conduct field trips to corporates in the region as well as online-meeting with industry experts. You can find more information about the seminars on this website.
The physical fitness of children and young people is an important issue as many of them are overweight, have a poor diet and do not feel like exercising. In recent years, the HYROX training approach has gained popularity and is successfully used by many adults. This discussion looks at whether HYROX training is also suitable for children and what the health benefits and risks are.
Health problems in children:
Today's children's lifestyles are characterised by physical inactivity and poor nutrition, resulting in many of them suffering from obesity and other health problems. Obesity is an important risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension and other diseases. Physical activity is an important factor in preventing obesity and improving cardiovascular health in children and adolescents.
HYROX training for children:
HYROX is a training approach that consists of different fitness disciplines. The HYROX Challenge consists of eight exercises that are performed on a specific sequence. Each exercise is performed for a set amount of time and there are short breaks between exercises. The eight exercises are: Running, Rowing, Pull-ups, Push-ups, Cycling, Burpees, Wall Balls and Sled Pulls.
Advantages of HYROX training for children:
1. total body workout: HYROX is a total body workout that uses all major muscle groups. This can be particularly beneficial for children as they are still growing and a holistic workout can help strengthen the skeleton and muscles.
2. varied training: HYROX training consists of different exercises that are all coordinated with each other. This can help keep the workout varied and motivating, which is especially important for children as they often quickly lose interest in exercise.
3. improving cardiovascular health: A study by Schmidt et al. (2021) has shown that HYROX training produces significant improvements in cardiovascular fitness. Good cardiovascular health is important for the prevention of cardiovascular disease and can help keep children healthy later in life.
4. social interaction: HYROX can be a way to get children and young people to exercise and socialise in a group. This can help children and young people to enjoy sport more and to do it for longer.
A HYROX like fitness event, which is initiated by Oberschule Rauschwalde's PE teacher Amadeus Jedrinewski and Ralf Iwan is set to be introduced as a pilot project in schools in Görlitz in July 2023. This fitness race is tailored to students aged between 12 to 17 years old and consists of 6 times 600m running and 6 workouts in between the running. The workouts include various exercises such as push-ups, air squats, and burpees, which are designed to challenge and improve the students' fitness levels.
The HYROX fitness event is a unique and exciting opportunity for students to challenge themselves and improve their physical health. It promotes the importance of physical activity and fitness among young people, who are increasingly leading sedentary lifestyles. This pilot project is a great initiative to encourage students to engage in physical activities and lead a healthier lifestyle.
The success of this pilot project could potentially lead to the HYROX like fitness event being rolled out in schools across the country.
This would be a great step towards addressing the growing concern about the fitness issues of children and teenagers in today's society. By introducing programs like HYROX, schools can play a crucial role in promoting and encouraging physical activity among young people.

I am wishing everyone a healthy and successful new year 2023! With all the challenges and problems we are experiencing globally, there will also be a lot of exciting projects and actions and I wish everyone the necessary luck in the implementation of their personal and professional projects.
Today the Lectures by the Lake MBA students presented their ideas in front of a panel in #Görlitz and the #unbezahlbarland lounge. The task given by the development agency ENO was "How to attract more highly skilled people to the area of Lusatia"?
The second event of the lectures by the Lake in December had the theme "How to attract skilled workers to the Lusatia region".
My students from the MBA courses "Operational Management" and "Leadership" had the task of developing innovative but at the same time feasible concepts for attracting foreign specialists to the Lusatia region.
The Lusatia region, which is still strongly influenced by mining, has been undergoing structural change for many years and suffers from a shortage of skilled workers. Although the region has a lot to offer potential new employers and employees, there is still a shortage of workers.
The students presented their solutions and proposals to a committee consisting of representatives of the district and the development company ENO. Afterwards, a discussion took place on the proposals.
There was also a supporting agenda, of course, because in addition to the presentation and discussion, entrepreneurs and freelancers in Görlitz were visited and interviewed on the topic.
A cultural tour with a guide who led through the historic old town of Görlitz and a visit to the Christmas market rounded off the event. #people #development #mba #students #goerlitz #globalization #businessdevelopment #education #taxpolicy.
