In Belgium, the four national anti-doping organisations are dedicated to fighting doping in sport. One of their key tasks is doping prevention.
In cooperation with Technopolis in Mechelen, NADO Flanders and the NADOs of the French and German-speaking Communities and of the Joint Community Commission in Brussels have developed the display around anti-doping within the hands-on thematic exhibition ‘Sport and Science’.
The exhibition will be open to the general public from July 1st 2018 until mid-2021.
This joint initiative ties in with the educative and preventative objectives pursued by anti-doping organisations and focuses on young people. It is important for this target group to adopt an anti-doping attitude.
During numerous events, such as school workshops, visitor workshops and sports quizzes, it is tried to convince young people of the importance of fair play by providing them with information on how they can avoid doping in sport.
All the material is made available in Dutch, French, English and German so as to reach every young person in Belgium.
With this long-term initiative the four Belgian NADOs want to make the largest possible sporting audience aware of the dangers of doping and the health damage it can cause.
