4m-sidibouzidCFI has just launched a new project in Tunisia to create citizen journalism clubs in youth centres; this project is in partnership with the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Tunisia and the Tunisian Nawaat blog, and is supported by CONFEJES - Conférence des Ministres de la Jeunesse et des Sports de la Francophonie (Conference of Ministers of Youth and Sports of Francophonie).

Initially, training will be held from September 25 to October 9, 2011 in Sidi Bouzid. It will involve trainers who will be in charge of moderating these clubs and to train the youth on video techniques and on participatory journalism on the Internet.

Two CFI experts established the framework for this project: web-journalist Manuel Liutkus and documentary filmmaker Mylène Sauloy, and also by two web experts in Nawaat - Riadh El Hammi and Oussema Mssaoud. Ten moderators from five different regions will receive two weeks of practical training on citizen journalism.

After the workshop, they will be able to do a citizen report or story independently, to publish their reports online using social media, and to train other young people on the same techniques.

In the second phase, these moderators will organise clubs in their respective youth centers. CFI will ensure that the clubs are monitored by carrying out a second round of activities in the five youth centers that participated in the first session. When these two workshops are completed, the project may eventually be developed to cover other youth centres.
