Polish cities are among the most polluted in Europe. To improve quality of life for residents, towns and cities in the Małopolska region have joined forces to create a network of eco-consultants. These consultants help local people to find the best ways of cutting emissions and to get funding to support them. Phase 1 of the ‘Małopolskie in a healthy atmosphere’ project – funded by the EU’s LIFE environmental instrument – is coming to an end. To mark the occasion, Małopolskie regional government representatives took part in a discussion about the future of LIFE in the European Parliament.

Eco-advisers have recently undertaken a number of information and educational activities in the region. People have received advice on exchanging their heating systems for more eco-friendly versions, energy efficiency modernisation and available support programmes at events organised by municipalities.
