Food Banks in Poland have been saving food from going to waste and donating it to those most in need for 25 years. We have the facilities, brand and experience in organizing support for people in need or victims of natural disasters, we work with trained groups of volunteers, and we know how to organize systematic and long-term support.

There are currently several isolated sections of high-speed rail (HSR) lines in Poland, and a number of plans have been developed to build more HSR lines. Unfortunately, these plans are unstable, fragmented, and, moreover, controversial on many points. Thus, there is concern that their findings are not appropriate, which could ultimately lead to the creation of an inconsistent and non-functional network of these lines.

Dozens of local governments – municipal and county councils and provincial assemblies – have passed resolutions and declarations opposing LGBT ideology. The creators of these documents emphasized the desire to protect the family based on traditional values and to defend the educational system against LGBT propaganda/ideology. Opponents warned against the stigmatization of non-heteronormative people. The guideline for the above documents became publicized in 2019. “Local Government Charter on the Rights of Families.”

In civil society, self-government as a form of social organization occupies one of the central positions. The condition for the realization of the development mission of local government is the participation of citizens and their co-responsibility for the shape of local social life. Recently, civic budgeting has become an increasingly popular form of participation, resulting in the direct involvement of residents in the process of deciding on the selection of the scope of public tasks within the designated pool of funds and assuming part of the responsibility.
