WCBS attends WADA’s 2024 Global Education Conference in France

Today, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) welcomed a record number of participants to the opening of the 2024 Global Education Conference (GEC) at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

WCBS was represented by our Board Member James Leacy.

The conference, which runs from 27-29 February, is being hosted by the Agence française de lutte contre le dopage (AFLD) and will welcome more than 400 participants from around the globe. The event brings together anti-doping practitioners, researchers, government officials and athletes to share and discuss emerging trends, contribute to education program development, and examine how education can continue to further anti-doping efforts internationally. This is the fourth edition of the GEC, having previously been staged in Ottawa, Canada (2015), Beijing, China (2018) and Sydney, Australia (2022).
