Welcome to IWCN

Let’s keep Coronavirus ennui at bay and share our ideas pro-actively

During these scary times, many of you may have creative ideas on what we can do and learn whilst at home and it would be wonderful to share these with our members.

If you have an idea that might interesting to other members and you would like to share it, please send an email (with a link to the site if it is something on the internet) to the Editor, editor@iwcn.ch and if your idea is approved, we will include it in the Digest and put it on our IWCN website.
