WAN-IFRA is launching a series of webinars to help accelerate, support and coordinate the global efforts of news publishers in the fight against Coronavirus.

In the context of its ongoing commitment to addressing the safety of journalists and the continuity of the critical mission of the press, WAN-IFRA is announcing a series of live web meetings and webinars to address some of the main challenges facing news media in the context of the current global Coronavirus outbreak.

Drawing on the practical experiences of media from around the world, we will examine the main areas in which decision-making, leadership and practical action are vital in assuring the safety of our journalists and newsrooms, and the continuity of our business operations.
The focus is primarily on both editorial and print-distribution contingency plans. The objective is to share lessons learned by some of our most affected publishers, open a wide discussion about specific local responses in different countries, mobilize cooperation and business support for the COVID-19 response, and galvanize the global news business community for collective action.
