This paper describes the application of the Ecological Engagement method in an intervention program for human rights education and agency, targeting adolescents in situations of social vulnerability. A new microsystem was built and was possible to identify social changes in the participants' behavior, respect for the rules, etc. These changes were consistent with the proposed approach of the Bioecological model of human development on the influence of environment. These findings reinforced the importance of applying the results in public and social polices.
