‘Ecology is not a problem of one backyard, one county, one city, but it concerns all of us around our country and in the world’, Anna Komorowska said on Monday, the 20th of June 2011 at the meeting of the National Ecology Council.
Anna Komorowska, who is the wife of Polish President, Bronislaw Komorowski, has become the chairwoman of the Council in February, when she received the nomination from Jerzy Buzek, the previous leader of the Council. ‘This coalition connects people who represent government, parliament, NGOs, businessmen and regular citizens and shows that such cooperation is possible, and what is more important, brings incredible results’, said the First Lady during the meeting.
The Council itself organizes the National Environment-friendly Competition, which promotes ideas bringing us closer to nature, but at the same time gives opportunity to those who are willing to share their innovative ecology friendly ideas on both technical and educational level. This year’s ceremony is to take place on the 15th of July in Warsaw.
