To standardise instruction for staff officers the “LAZARUS UNION Leadership Academy“ was founded effect 1. December 2015. Task of this academy is to convey standardised “knowledge modules“ regarding the LAZARUS UNION to officers and high-ranking NCOs.

Our biggest group member, the CSLI Brazil, with its “Academia São Lázaro de Estudos Cavalheirescos e Humanitários (ASLECH)” is an accredited full member of UNAI (United Nation Academic Impact) and we have therefore agreed that our leadership academy within the LAZARUS UNION acts here in Austria as a branch. While the Leadership Academy is an independent unit, but under the umbrella of the CSLI Brazil respective of its ASLECH. So we can avoid for ourselves a long-standing certification process.

These courses will in the first place be offered in Austria only. In the future a self-study course shall be offered with final exam (multiple choice test with 25 questions, 20 of which must be answered correctly to pass) and an exposition covering a given subject.

Of course participation in such seminars is voluntary (like everything in the LAZARUS UNION) but future staff officers (and knights of honour) shall consider this a privilege, not a duty.

In the first place about ten different modules shall be offered. At least 90% of the information and knowledge required for these modules can be found at our web site.


The following modules are planned resp. in preparation:


Module 1:   LAZARUS UNION History

Module 2:   Rhetoric and Presentation Techniques

Module 3:   Organization, Structure, and Composition

Module 4:   International Liaisons

Module 5:   Leadership

Module 6:   Character Building and Developing

Module 7:   Event Planning and Executing

Module 8:   Project Planning and Executing

Module 9:   Website Structure

Awards of the Academy:


The Union‘s Lazarus Cross

for science, research and arts


Science, research, and arts constitute are very important achievements of mankind. Without those three fields we all would be doomed respectively lose important perspectives. By donating the “Union‘s Lazarus Cross for science, research and arts“ the LAZARUS UNION wants to set a mark.


Awarding guidelines:

Anyone who has notice of a person‘s scientific or artistic outstanding achievements is entitled to file an application directed to the board of management of the Lazarus Union that these persons shall be awarded (click HERE for an application form).

Such application will be examined by a board and in case of a positive decision the respective level of the award will be decided on.

“Lazarus Crosses for science, research and arts“ awarded this way will AS A BASIC PRINCIPLE be awarded at no charges. This implies that also all insignia cost contributions will be waived.

By this the donators of this award ensure that the award is not for sale and as such is a valuable and REAL honour not everybody can have as there are no commercial interests in this award.

The receiver will be informed and a ceremonial handover agreed. Again, no legal entitlement to the above-mentioned awards shall be constituted from an application. All decisions are final and not subject to legal appeal. Also other awards (according to the respective regulations) can be selected.

By filing any application for this award these terms and conditions are accepted and agreed on.

For the LAZARUS UNION the fact is important that this award can NOT just be purchased. One has to DO something to get it.

Description of the Insignia:

This elaborate and affectionately designed insignia consists of a cross with a layered middle medallion.

The cross is a double edged slightly flattened Maltese cross with eight points, separated in the middle, with a 60mm diameter and a 15mm golden circle in the centre.

At the eight tips are eight golden hemispheres. The white framing of the green cross (green as the colour of hope) between the wider outer and narrower inner edge is kept in green.

The middle medallion 15mm in diameter fits in with the middle circle of the cross. It has a subtle doubly structured edge in between which the LAZARUS UNION principles in Latin are arranged with a green background: “TOLERANTIA + HUMILITAS + CARITAS + MISERICORDIA.“ In a region of about 1cm² the Christ raising of Lazarus is depicted. This wonderful artistically engraved three-dimensional colourfully enriched illustration is the “eye-catcher“ of this insignia.

The cross and the middle medallion are carried out convex and such are suggestive of special elegance and three-dimensionality.

The distinction is awarded in three levels:

1. Officer Cross as pectoral cross

2. Commander Cross as collar cross

3. Grand Cross as pectoral cross with star

The pectoral crosses are worn on the left side.

But it is GENERAL the rule for all given decorations, awards and insignias in honor of the awardees,  that award winners may be neither sold nor given away them to third parties in their lifetime!
