The international consortium of the European Week of Clean Sport (EWCS) Project met in-person for the second time in Warsaw, Poland between May 15-16th. The 2nd transnational partners’ meeting was hosted by the Polish Anti-Doping Agency (POLADA).

During the meeting the EWCS consortium conducted a series of online interviews with important sport stakeholders from across the globe to learn about best practices in organising, communicating, and evaluating public communication campaigns. The stakeholders that were interviewed included UK Anti-Doping, the World Anti-Doping Agency, EuropeActive, the Gender Equality Rapporteur of the Monitoring Group of the Anti-Doping Convention of the Council of Europe, and UEFA.

Finally, the meeting involved thematic sessions for knowledge transfer between other anti-doping projects and campaigns. Professor Lambros Lazuras, from Sheffield Hallam University in the UK, presented Project Mindful Muscles (, a project focused on doping prevention in recreational sport settings through the use of mindfulness, self-acceptance, self-compassion, and values-based exercises.

Dr Katarzyna Kopeć-Ziemczyk, Head of Communications for POLADA, presented the event I run for Pure Fun (, which promotes charity and clean sport values through city running.

The EWCS consortium will continue the preparations for the EWCS campaign and will meet again in person in December 2023 in Lisbon. The meeting will be hosted by ADoP (Autoridade Antidopagem de Portugal).
