An unofficial part of every WAN-IFRA Study Tour agenda includes the powerful networking among your peers. A typical Study Tour draws interest from participants around the globe, and this certainly enhances the learning experience as you discuss with one another what is working - and not working - in your newsrooms. The exchange of ideas and peer-to-peer discussions remain a highlight for the participants who can takeaway new ideas to reuse back home.
