Warm-up with European Funds and presentation of Małopolska LIFE projects

This past weekend – May 27 and 28 – another event in the series took place: Warm-up with European Funds. This time, residents of Gorlice and Myslenice were able to talk about EU funds. The spring warm-up tour includes 10 stops. The main purpose of the meetings is to prepare future beneficiaries of European Funds in Małopolska to apply for EU support for planned investments.

Gorlice discovers the potential of European Funds

The LIFE Project “Malopolska in a healthy atmosphere” was not to be missed during the outdoor events. Residents of the region were able to talk to, among others, eco-managers and coordinators from the Marshal’s office about the project’s activities and “green investments”. Specialists provided comprehensive information on the conditions and rules for applying for grants for furnace replacement and renewable energy sources. Experts explained the procedures for submitting and settling subsidy applications.

Attractions in the festival town

During the event, participants were able to combine learning with great fun. In the festival town they had the opportunity to try their hand at the disciplines played during the Third European Games, hosted by Malopolska. Among the available attractions were a climbing wall, a lesson with a judo trainer, and fencing and archery lessons. In addition, participants could take part in contests, quizzes and games with prizes.
