A master Black Sea Box was created in English and Turkish.
The Black Sea Box was introduced through working with the Turkish Ministry of Education and a draft was provided to the General Director of Primary Education. In March 2012, a protocol was signed between Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF-Turkey) and the General Directorate of Primary Education (19 March 2010) for joint promotion of the Black Sea Box.
Black Sea Box instructor training sessions were held in Rize and Trabzon in Turkey, training more than 200 instructors. The workshops focused on why the Black Sea is important and covered the content of the Black Sea Box (the aim of the project, the target group, the CD, game cards, posters, the format of the Teachers’ Handbook and the methods and techniques presented in the handbook).
Distribution of the Black Sea Box Kit to districts of Istanbul on the Black Sea coast happened in collaboration with the Provincial Directorate of Environment and Forestry during their Environment Education Project teacher training sessions.
During the Teachers Academy Foundation’s (TAF) Leader Teacher Training sessions, the Black Sea Box was distributed to teachers from Black Sea cities (in Artvin on 27 – 29 May, and in Ordu, Giresun, Samsun, Sinop, and Rize on 20 – 30 June).
A total of 800 teachers received Black Sea Box kits as part of TAF Leader Teacher Training.
