Rozwój lokalny - Dugnad

"Dugnad" in Kędzierzyn-Koźle. 

Integration of residents and improvement of neighbourly relations as foundations of local development.

23.03.2023 - Knitting and having fun

Our seniors are discovering new passions. Once again they are being helped by the 'Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle' project. Another handicraft workshop for senior citizens is behind us. This time the free workshop took place in the Day Care Centre No. 3.

The participants used yarn to create beautiful Easter decorations. The motto of the event was "Knit and have fun! Under the watchful eye of the instructor, they created colourful bunnies to decorate any home.

Knitting is not the only activity offered by the Municipal Social Welfare Centre. More handicraft courses are planned for April and May.

22.03.2023 - Report on the implementation of "Dugnad

The activities of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project are gaining momentum, so coordination meetings are being held more frequently. The latest meeting of partners involved in the implementation of the project took place this year.

The meeting was chaired by the Vice Presidents of the City, Artur Maruszczak and Wojciech Jagiełło, who listened to a detailed report on the initiatives currently being implemented. In recent months, not a week has passed in Kędzierzyn-Koźle without an event organised by a project co-funded by the so-called "Norway Grants". Free sensory workshops for children and handicraft activities for senior citizens have recently become very popular. Free legal advice for local associations and foundations has also been introduced. Preparations are also being made for further sports events to activate and integrate the residents of our city.

21.03.2023 - Handmade ceramics from A to Z

"Glazing is the most beautiful part of the work," say the participants in the ceramics workshop at the Municipal Cultural Centre. This is the final stage of creation, when the work of our hands gets the right colours and shapes and can be fired in the kiln.

The group from March, who take part in the free integration and sensory classes organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project, are putting the finishing touches to their ornaments. In a few days they will be able to collect the items they have worked on during the last few meetings.

17.03.2023 - Styrofoam decorations instead of tradition Easter eggs

Combining tradition with modern decorating techniques and integrating seniors with the younger generation. This is how to sum up the handicraft workshops organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project. Beautiful Easter decorations were created in Dom Dziennego Pobytu no. 4.

The theme of the activities was inspired by the approaching holidays. Not surprisingly, eggs dominated the tables. However, the usual egg shells, wax and paint were replaced by polystyrene decorations and coloured ribbons. This technique was new to most of the participants, regardless of age. Nevertheless, under the watchful eye of the instructor, real gems were hatched.

16.03.2023 - Equipment that saves lives

More defibrillators in our community. AEDs have been installed in the offices of the Municipal Social Welfare Centre and in the sheltered housing units of the Azoty Estate. The life-saving equipment was purchased as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

But the equipment is not everything. MOPS staff have been trained in the principles of first aid. Firefighters from OSP Kłodnica and OSP ORW Koźle provided professional knowledge and support. During the course, not only were all the basic rules of behaviour in life-threatening situations recalled, but there was also an opportunity to practise the use of defibrillators.

15.03.2023 - Clay wonders created at "Magnolia"

Seniors from the Day Care Centre No. 2 are improving their artistic skills. The ceramic workshops organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project resulted in small works of art made of clay.

Bowls and small sculptures emerged from the fingers of the talented participants of the previous courses. This was the beginning of the process, after which it was time to decorate and paint their creations.

14.03.2023 - A delicious and healthy diet thanks to the Norwegians

What to eat for a nutritious breakfast, what to eat for lunch and what time to sit down for dinner? Our seniors benefit from the nutritionist's valuable advice completely free of charge. They discuss their eating habits during consultations organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

The first group of interested residents has already taken advantage of the free advice. The meetings took place at Dom Dziennego Pobytu nr 1 in Śródmieście. More people can also make appointments. All they have to do is call 77 483 78 79, extension 408, which is available Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free legal advice can also be arranged in the same way.

13.03.2023 - "Dugnad" heralds the arrival of spring

Spring has already arrived in the Municipal Cultural Centre. It came at the invitation of the participants of the sensory workshops organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

During the therapeutic activities the visitors sowed and planted plants. For the little ones it was an important lesson about nature, for the older ones it was a reminder and a lot of fun. The most important thing, however, as always with projects co-financed by "Norwegian" funds, was integration.

09.03.2023 - Seniors gained more than knowledge from these workshops

At Day Care Centre No. 5 today, everyone had a blank page... that they made themselves. During the paper-making workshop, the seniors mastered the difficult and ancient technique of creating their own ready-to-write pages. The innovative lessons were organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

Under the watchful eye of a specialist, the participants learned about paper-making methods, which they were soon able to try out in practice. The final products will serve them in many, probably equally creative, ways. They were invited to this unusual activity and to a joint meeting by the Municipal Social Welfare Centre.

08.03.2023 - Professionals and amateurs in the ultimate artistic integration

Ceramic workshops organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project attract even professional artists. This time the sculptor Michał Misiaszek, well known in our town, was spotted among the participants.

As always, everyone is welcome to take part in the courses – small, big, young, old, those with no experience at all, as well as professionals. The main idea of the project is integration. During the last workshop, the author of the friendly goats sculptures, well known to the locals, joined the group. This time, Michal Misiaszek switched metal for clay and his studio for a room in the Koźle Cultural Centre.

07.03.2023 - Professional support as part of Dugnad 

Senior citizens as well as representatives of the third sector and volunteers can already benefit from professional support. The offer of counsellors is wide and tailored to individual needs. Free counselling is provided as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

NGO representatives already benefit from free legal assistance. Soon they will also be able to use accounting services. The city also has senior citizens in mind. In addition to paralegals, health specialists will also be available. Residents over the age of 60 can benefit from the advice of a dietician and will soon be able to make an appointment with a physiotherapist.

Expert advice is organised by the Municipal Social Welfare Centre. In order to make an appointment, you must register in advance. To make an arrangement, simply call 77 483 78 79 ext. 408. The telephone helpline is open Monday to Friday from 7.00 to 15.00.


22.02.2023 - Crocheting brought generations together

Needle and thread danced at Day Care Centre No. 3. Or rather, crochet hook and yarn. Another handicraft workshop organised by the Municipal Social Welfare Centre as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project took place at the centre in the Azoty district.

This time the class took place in the knitting workshop. Under the watchful eye of the instructors, real gems that could decorate any home were created. The challenge was mainly taken up by senior citizens, but there were also some much younger participants, which fits in well with the idea of intergenerational integration.

21.02.2023 - First high school team wins entrepreneurship competition

The workshop dimension of the Social Entrepreneurship Olympiad has come to an end. The grand finale was the third and final skirmish in which the participants put their acquired knowledge and skills to the test. Now the biggest challenge lies ahead. It is time to act and try to put their projects into practice.

Young people from secondary schools in Kędzierzyn-Koźle took part in the competition. Over the past few weeks, they actively participated in numerous classes, trainings and meetings to learn about business and cooperation with local authorities. The young people were given the entrepreneurial bug by the Europa Iuvenis association as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

In the final round, the teams had to prepare and submit a funding application for the launch of a major community project, as well as present promotional materials and a planned social media campaign. The main test, however, was a simulated 'pitch' to a potential partner. When the results of all the competitions were counted, the winners of the Olympiad were the students of the First High School. Young people from the Second High School, the Complex of Technical and Comprehensive Schools and the Complex of Inland Navigation Schools also took part in the game.

20.02.2023 - Clay fun for the whole family

A little patience and concentration combined with a paintbrush and a pinch of talent produced amazing results. More people took part in a sculpture and ceramics workshop organised by the city's Community Centre. A great idea for a family morning.

The integration classes organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project continue to be very popular. For several months now, free courses have been held in the Community Centre in Kędzierzyn-Koźle under the guidance of experienced instructors. The offer also includes sensory therapy classes for children with dysfunctions.

17.02.2023 - These flowers will never wither

Passion, beauty and usefulness went hand in hand in this workshop. Guests of DCC "Wrzos" created their own bouquets under the guidance of an experienced instructor. Although made from artificial materials, they deceptively resemble real flowers.

Both senior citizens, regular visitors to Day Care Centre No. 4, and guests of all ages took part in the activities. They took their small, useful works of art home with them as a souvenir of the time they spent together integrating as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

15.02.2023 - Residents develop creative skills with Dugnad

The handcraft workshops organised by the Municipal Social Welfare Centre have started. The first ceramics classes at Magnolia Day Care Centre No. 2 are already behind us. More of these meetings are planned.

This is the first of many creative activities that MSWC will implement as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project. The free and unpaid workshops are intended to be intergenerational, bringing together senior citizens, young people and children, among others, at craft stands. The various day care centres will prepare their own programmes of activities for those who wish to discover and improve their artistic and useful talents.

14.02.2023 - Magical lights return to the community centre

The popularity of the recent light workshops organised as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project exceeded the organisers' expectations. Therefore, it was decided to hold it again, but this time in a slightly different, more occasional format.

The theme of this year's magical creations was Valentine's Day. The young artists used light and sand to create works of art about love. If you like this idea, you will be pleased to know that there are still places available for the sensory workshops in April. To register, call 77 480 25 57.

13.02.2023 - Young people under the wing of Europa Iuvenis

These were the preparations before the last skirmish of the 'Social Entrepreneurship Olympiad'. This time, the topics on the agenda of the young people's workshops were 'Winning allies and communication' and 'Entrepreneurship and the labour market'.

This marks the end of the third and last cycle of workshops planned within the framework of the 'Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle' project. The classes, organised by the Europa Iuvenis association, were led by Paweł Dolibóg and Artur Ośko. All seven teams from the four secondary schools participating in the Olympiad took part. In the final round, the participants competed against each other to show what they had learnt.

The artistic workshops in the Municipal Cultural Centre in Kędzierzyn-Koźle are in full swing. The last classes of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project have now come to an end.

Young athletes develop their passions by training in teams that were former missing from the city's offer. These include girls' soccer, bowling and canoeing training schools. At frequent classes, they develop their skills, which they will later test in scheduled competitions. The trainings are completely free of charge. All costs, including, among others, salaries for instructors or fees for sports facilities, are financed from the so-called "Norwegian funds." Everyone is welcome to participate in the classes, both fully able-bodied children and those with dysfunctions.

18.01.2023 - Pleasant workshop on a serious topic

The Municipal Public Library hosted another ecological-integrative meeting as part of the "Dugnad in Kedzierzyn-Kozle" project. The lecture "Man in times of great change" engaged the participants in many ways.

The speaker Malgorzata Szyszka addressed a lot of topics concerning the fauna and flora of our planet. Short theatrical scenes were created, addressing various ecological issues, followed by brainstorming sessions, during which solutions were collectively sought. The charges of the Occupational Therapy Workshops from Kędzierzyn-Koźle participating in the meeting completed every task with flying colours!

17.01.2023 - A fresh perspective on social issues

This was the second skirmish within the framework of the "Social Entrepreneur Olympiad." Almost 100 participants from 12 schools gathered within the walls of the 1st High School. The competition in the form of an ideathon lasted almost all day. Young people are developing their new skills to prepare them for adult life thanks to the "Dugnad in Kedzierzyn-Kozle" project.

Elementary and high school students created social projects aimed at solving important problems also existing in our city.

The solutions proposed by the youngsters were listened to by deputy mayor Wojciech Jagiełło, director of the Municipal Cultural Center Piotr Gabrysz, director of the Municipal Sports and Recreation Center Tomasz Radłowski, manager of the Kędzierzyn-Koziel Industrial Park Tomasz Starowicz and vice-president of the XYZ Social Initiative Association Tomasz Cholewiński.

16.01.2023 - Darkness! I see darkness

Sometimes it's enough to turn off the light for magic to start happening. Then the magic is completed by sand, grains, seeds and everything that has a nice texture to the touch. W just had another sensory classes organized as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

The free workshops at the Municipal Community Center are addressed primarily to the youngest children and their parents. Through their senses toddlers get to know the world around them even better.

Another ecological workshop was held as part of the "Dugnad in Kedzierzyn-Kozle" project. This time in branch no. 5 of the Municipal Public Library wonderful plaster herbariums were created. 

How to immortalize nature, in this unusual way, participants learned from the class leaders Ewa Pietruszewska and Agnieszka Urban from "Pracownia Się Tworzy".
