On Monday, 23 January 2023, in the Kazimierz Lepszy Lecture Hall, the inaugural session of the scientific council of the regional education programme of the second term, will take place. The council was established under the agreement of the University of Silesia in Katowice with the Marshal of the Silesian Voivodeship. The session will be opened by the Rector of the University of Silesia, Prof. Ryszard Koziołek and Marshal Jakub Chełstowski.

They are representatives of various universities and cultural institutions in the Voivodeship: museums, school boards, educational units and institutions.

The tasks of the council include care for preserving and shaping regional identity, creating conditions for the development of regional education, ensuring the cohesion of regional educational programmes, creating a way of transmitting the content of regional cultural heritage and shaping modern regional identity.
