A social media course in Samoa that will teach people to use internet tools, blog, and help them use social media for their jobs is due to start in late October.

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation EU-ACP (C.T.A), which works in agriculture and rural development in 78 countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, is supporting the adoption of Web 2.0 applications and social media.

The Women in Business Development Inc., in collaboration with The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (S.P.C), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (S.P.R.E.P), the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (M.A.F), the Pacific Environment Information Network (P.E.I.N) project, and C.T.A will host a 5-day Web 2.0 Learning Opportunity, on 27-31 October, 2014.
