It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of IWWF President Emeritus Kuno Ritschard at the age of 84.

Kuno was the President of IWWF for 16 years from 2001 to 2017 and has been a highly valued member of the IWWF.  He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.

Please keep Kuno’s wife Vreny and his son in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.

A tribute to Kuno Ritschard will follow in the next few days.
