Pupils were trained to ask older people not to litter their environment and do more recycle. During the training, pupils were served with milk and toys (project educational material). Afterward, the LitOUTer Project Turkish Coordinator Prof.Dr. Fatma Telli KARAKOÇ told a story about “Mersin fish” (an endangered-Black Sea original fish) the Black Sea hero.
