Silesians, what are you proud of? What have you achieved over the years? You’re going to find it out during our very special event: TEDxKatowiceSalon: Be Proud! which will be held during Europejski Kongres MŚP - European Congress of Small and Medium – Size Enterprises. This meeting is decidated to English speakers and foreigners who live or spend some time in Katowice and would like to know more about Silesia region. Katowice and its area hides values you have never even heard about before. We would like to show you different perspective and prove that Silesia is not about coal and Silesian potato dumplings (which are amazing anyway!). Our area is about something more - it’s about history, identity and people who made us who we are today.
