“Eigenständig werden” is a school-based programme for the development of life-skills, health promotion, prevention of substance abuse and aggression. Many studies have shown that the prevention of e.g. substance abuse should start as early as possible and should include children under the age of 10. Prevention programmes should be run continuously over a longer period of time to achieve a sustained support of the children. These issues were taken into account in the development of “Eigenständig warden”. The program is made for grade 1-4.
