The 'blog your holidays' workshop will be held for two weeks. In the first week the students will receive training on citizen journalism and how to blog. On the second week they will search materials for their posts which will be published simultaneously in their own blogs and the project blog.

Théophile Kouamouo, one of Francophone Africa's leading bloggers, is arranging a series of blogcamps in Abidjan, Ivory Coast with the help of a community of experienced bloggers and supported by a Rising Voices Micro Grant. The workshops on blogging, podcasting, video-blogging etc. will bring more and more Ivorians to the blogosphere to voice their opinions on different issues that affect their lives.
