Invitation: Join us in Gothenburg at the 25th ECAD Mayors’ Conference and the 6th World Forum Against Drugs

RUN and EURAD invite all members to join us at the 25th ECAD Mayors’ Conference and the 6th World Forum Against Drugs, two important events that will take place jointly on May 14-15 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

International cooperation in drug policy field has been facing many challenges in the past period. The UN Drug Conventions are clear on what goals drug preventive work must have. Still, there are different views on how this work should be carried out in practice. 

The Gothenburg event is a joint project between World Federation Against Drugs, European Cities Against Drug and the Swedish National Movement Against Drugs, hosted by the City of Gothenburg. It consists of three conferences in one and will go in-depth on the best practices and strategies for implementing the updated international standards for prevention.

By registering you are eligible to all plenary sessions and the breakout sessions you choose. Please register via the following link and also visit the website of the conference to see full program and the list of speakers.


The conference will among other focus on the following areas:

  • recovery as a goal of treatment,

  • how the criminal justice system can work with providers of treatment and other services for drug users,

  • importance of having a gender perspective in treatment services.


We look forward to seeing you all in Gothenburg.
