In the following study we have evaluated the impact of a school education programme upon students', parents' and teachers' environmental knowledge, attitudes and behaviour. Students (aged 11-13) from primary schools in Kraków, Poland, participated in the programme over a period of four months and together with their parents and teachers were surveyed using questionnaires at the conclusion of the programme. Overall, findings revealed that the programme improved student knowledge and awareness of municipal waste. Improvement in knowledge weakly correlated with age, enjoyment of the programme and self-reported learning. Three quarters of the students shared their learning with their parents and a third attempted to improve waste practices in their homes. The majority of parents reported that the programme was valuable and confirmed frequent family discussions often leading to a change in household attitudes and waste practices. Teachers also evaluated the programme positively, recommending its implementation as an ideal solution to the national waste problems. Other results of the study are discussed and suggestions for instruction are provided.
