Welcome to ECAD international conference in Veliky Novgorod, Russia, on September 15-16, 2011!

The winner City of ECAD Award for 2010, the City of Veliky Novgorod in Russia invites all interested to an international conference "Preventing drug addiction: How do we reduce drug demand in the first place?"

Experiences originated from Russian drug policy shifts will be mixed with international research on the value of local and regional prevention policies. 

Except for the most engaging presentations, the City of Veliky Novgorod has a great deal of history to offer. It is believed to be the place of the first ancient Russian settlements, the first capital of Russia ("Rus" in old Russian) founded by Rurik prince family and the origin place of Russian Vikings (called "varyags").

ECAD’s 18th Mayor’s Conference in Varna, Bulgaria, was a great success with some very interesting speakers and good social events. Annual Mayor’s Conference is an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues and others, strengthen already existing contacts and to make new ones.
 It is also a perfect moment to tighten our organization and last but not least to have some fun. It seemed that many participants took hold on these opportunities during the Conference.

ECAD warmly thanks all appreciated speakers, interested participants and the hosts in Varna. Without the organizers good sense of structure and assistance, the Conference would not have been as great as it was!
