Lower Silesia uncompromising in the fight against smog
In the interest of clean air, the voivodeship is taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by anti-smog resolutions. Particularly restrictive rules will apply from 2028 in Wrocław and spa municipalities, because it will no longer be possible to heat buildings with coal.
Łódź Voivodeship fights against drought
Contrary to popular belief, the Voivodeship does not become a desert but, just like the whole country, it experiences the effects of climate change, and most of all water scarcity. The local government of the region undertakes many activities to counteract the effects of these phenomena.
Lublin Voivodeship: Speaking clearly about air, water and… noise!
The Lublin region abounds in rich soils with high production values. This makes the economy inextricably linked with agriculture, which is also a basis for much of the industry in the region. As a result, the Voivodeship is one of the cleanest in the country; however, the authorities and society cannot afford to be complacent in any way. Excessive air pollution with PM10, PM2.5 and benzo[a]pyrene is caused by vehicle emissions and heating houses with low-quality fuels. What is the recovery plan?
Subcarpathia educates residents and communes.
Improving air quality is not only a statutory obligation for local authorities, but above all, an action to promote the wellbeing and health of citizens. The authorities of the province are doing a lot to provide them with the necessary knowledge.
Subcarpathia supports the ROP.
This voivodship is also affected by the problem related to waste. Even though recycling rates are rising, even sorted waste cannot find its buyers. In the opinion of the voivodeship, it is time to make determined, national actions.
Mazovia implements a diversified policy of air protection
It is forced by the specificity of the region, where economically very developed areas are adjacent to the less developed ones. In addition, the local government tries to make the inhabitants aware of the importance of their actions. Meanwhile, most of them still blame the pollution on the industry.
Mazovia is not only Warsaw’s problem.
It is a typical agricultural region, which is why drought caused by climate change has a negative impact on the economic situation of the residents. The management of municipal waste, the volume of which continues to grow, also poses challenges for the local government.
The Pomeranian Voivodeship for climate: Loans, investments, and systemic support for air protection.
The region distinguished by a rich natural and scenic diversity is inviting enthusiasts of green areas and active recreation to explore it and learn more about it. Vast forest resources place the Pomeranian Voivodeship on the 3rd position in Poland. They also have a considerable impact on the air quality, which, combined with systematically decreasing concentrations of dust and gas pollutants, is above average here. So, what else can be improved? Let’s check.
West Pomerania - the ecological leader
For years, Western Pomerania has had aspirations to be the greenest Polish voivodeship. Already, air quality is best in Poland, and most of the electricity used comes from OZE.
Małopolska pioneers the fight for clean air
The adopted anti-smog resolutions, especially the one for Krakow introducing a total ban on the use of solid fuels, became a model for other regions. The effects of the applied restrictions are already visible.
ecoMałopolska - we care about the environment
The Tatra, Pieniny, Gorce and Beskid ranges - a region with such treasures cannot be indifferent to the power of nature. The people of Małopolska have always lived in harmony with its rhythms. However, during several decades of intensive industrial and technological development, the environmental balance has been disturbed in all regions of Europe. Małopolska can be proud of the fact that the need to protect the natural resources of the environment was quickly recognised here, and the projects implemented to this end are an inspiration to other regional and local authorities.
Silesia under the blue sky
This is a special region where, due to the high degree of urbanization and industrialization, man has an above-average impact on the environment. However, the voivodeship is awaiting future transformation, but today is already placing more emphasis on improving air quality.
Świętokrzyskie unleashes potential
On the one hand, the voivodeship is trying to relieve the burden on the environment, focusing on the development of waste management and air protection, and on the other hand, it supports nature, e.g., in its own capacity for water retention. At the same time, it eliminates many years of neglect and introduces solutions which are unique on the scale of the country.
Greater Poland: It feels lighter to breathe, but the smog continues to poison
In Greater Poland, air quality improves every year, however, the benzo(a)pyrene continues to remain too high. What is the plan for getting rid of this burning issue? It’s ambitious! An even greater emphasis on education and, consequently, strengthening public awareness, subsidies to support clean air action, and achieving climate neutrality by 2040. Set... go!
The Opolskie Voivodeship is fighting for cleaner air... with greenery!
It is the smallest and one of the warmest voivodeships in Poland, which can boast an abundance of valuable areas of landscape parks. The fertile soil is abundant in mineral resources and the forests and waters are also valuable resources. However, the rate of afforestation is not high, which makes the fight for good-quality air difficult. For this reason, greenery is struggling to flourish here! What else, apart from planting trees, are the voivodeship authorities going to do to allow people to breathe better?
Natural environment of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. Today and tomorrow
The overall area of lakes located within the voivodeship accounts for 9% of the area of all water bodies in the country. Local governments and officials, however, are thrown into deep water when it comes to fighting pollution. An additional problem of the central-western and southern parts of the region is the rarity of precipitation occurring here, which is considered one of the lowest in the country. What action is being taken by local authorities to counteract the negative effects of drought and human activity in the region? Let’s check it!
