|Abstract:||This article aims to present preliminary results of an ongoing research project linking environmental education and citizenship engagement. We will illustrate the actions of the students engaged in the project to draw their classmates’ attention to the school and the environmental issues surrounding them. Particularly, we will focus on the particular on a seminar prepared and presented by the students to disclose the results of a survey conducted of all students in the school. Our preliminary findings suggest that citizenship engagement actions in the school provide students with social leadership (empowerment), and that they thus become agents of transformation in the school environment with a personal responsibility and participatory attitude.|
