Abstract

This article presents results of evaluation research of one year-long programme for 8-11 years old pupils provided by the Ecocenter Podhoubi. Evaluation applied a mixed-design based on experimental/control pre-test/post-test comparison, analysis of focus groups and non-structured observation. According to the research, the programme well develops selected pupils’ action competencies and in the same time increases belief in their self-efficacy in dealing with them. Pupils interpret the program as both enjoying and meaningful and give examples of its impact on their own knowledge, attitudes and behaviour.
