28 international volunteers have been accepted for the „Silesia. For a better stay” program. During the following three months they will be carrying out a research aiming at identifying the needs and expectations of foreign nationals living in the region, concerning the availability and relevance of its educational and cultural offer. Our volunteers represent different age, social and professional groups. Some have been living in Poland for many years, the others arrived just one month ago. They come from 4 continents and represent 15 countries: Ireland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Serbia, Belorussia, Ukraine, Russia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Lebanon, Mexico, China, South Korea and Vietnam. We are very much looking forward to reading the reports and recommendations.
