The quality of the environment, and thus its condition, wealth and diversity, has a direct impact on people’s health and comfort of life. In connection with the above, the Council will constitute an advisory body for the Management Board of the Małopolska Voivodship in order to increase activity in the field of environmental protection and development.”
