82 million zlotys is how much Poland's state forest authorities plan to spend on fire prevention measures this year-zl.16 million more than last year. Since the start of this year, there have been 4,260 fires in forests across the country.

The fifth Summer University organized by the Warsaw School of Economics Student Council is aimed at students from foreign universities. The Summer University Warsaw (SUW) project was initiated by a group of students based on Western European summer universities. It was initially aimed at students from Europe. This year it has been extended to include North and South America, Asia and Africa.

As part of this year's SUW program, 100 students with the best essays on the topic "Describe an example of innovative technology (or product) implemented in your country by small and medium-sized enterprises" will take part in a two-week series of lectures from July 5 to 20. The lectures will be divided into two subject modules. The first ("Innovation and entrepreneurship: the backbone of modern economy development") deals with European and world markets and the second ("Business management in Poland and other transition countries: contribution to the European economy") is mainly focused on the Polish economy.

Lectures, workshops and case studies will be conducted by Warsaw School of Economics lecturers and VIPs from Polish political and economic circles.

Students will be tested on what they learn in this part of the program in an exam at the end of the course. Participants will take part in afternoon workshops that will help them learn about Warsaw and its culture, and enable them to see places associated with Warsaw's history and economic progress, such as the Royal Castle, the Polish parliament, the Warsaw Uprising Museum, and the Warsaw Stock Exchange. Young foreigners will also have an opportunity to learn about the job market in Poland through meetings with companies interested in recruiting foreign graduates.
