    I am pleased to invite all anti-doping stakeholders and clean sport ambassadors to join WADA’s fourth Global Education Conference (GEC), to be held from 27-29 February 2024 in Cannes, France. This edition of the GEC will be held in partnership with the French National Anti-Doping Organization, l’Agence française de lutte contre le dopage.

    The Conference will provide the opportunity for anti-doping practitioners and researchers to discuss emerging trends, share best practices and reflect on how education can continue to further our efforts in the fight against doping in sport.

    As a former athlete and team player, I believe that only through collaboration and communication can we raise the bar for anti-doping education. We must remain united to pursue our vision of a world where all athletes can participate in a doping-free sporting environment and preserve the spirit of sport. Everyone has a role to play, so I encourage you to come, state your position, and join the team.

    I look forward to seeing you at WADA's 2024 Global Education Conference in Cannes!

    L’Agence française de lutte contre le dopage, the French Anti-Doping Agency, is delighted to host the next WADA Global Education Conference in France, on the eve of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Anti-doping education is one of the key pillars of doping prevention, and it is necessary to share our know-how and expertise to improve our programs and help protect our athletes.

    The Paris Games are a major event that will inspire and promote sports in all countries. This is why we must make 2024 a decisive year for clean sport and the dissemination of its values for all participants. It is our responsibility to unite to make anti-doping a lasting Olympic and Paralympic legacy.

    We hope to see many of you in France in 2024 and I say, see you soon!

    The Global Education Conference is a great opportunity to bring the voice of athletes on a subject as essential as anti-doping to the sporting community and the general public, in France but also at the international level. The Olympic and Paralympic Games that France will host next year will be a unique opportunity to talk about clean sport and to work on all education levels that have an impact on this subject. 

    The members of the AFLD Athletes’ Committee are looking forward to participating in the many exchanges that will take place during this Conference to continue to defend the values of clean sport in France and throughout the world.
