The city’s advantage is a young and educated society, currently the population of Dąbrowa Górnicza is approx. 120,000, including almost 70 % of those of productive age.

The City Hall together with business organizations and entrepreneurs undertakes a number of efforts aimed at adjusting directions of education to the needs of the labour market. During workshops and conferences opinions and ideas are exchanged on labour market requirements and adaptation of educational profiles. The results of these activities are new courses in secondary schools, which educate students to meet the needs of the city’s existing workplaces, as well as school agreements with entrepreneurs, which prepare students for future work as part of apprenticeships. Such projects translate into a reduction in unemployment and allow young people to plan their career paths much better . In this way, for entrepreneurs Dąbrowa becomes a professional resource of thoroughly and professionally prepared staff.

Nationwide actions such as Business Day and World Entrepreneurship Week are held in Dąbrowa Górnicza.
