we acknowledge that:

  • Multiple types of knowledge exist and are held by stakeholders across many contexts 
  • Exploring and incorporating such knowledge is vital to developing effective anti-doping education
  • This requires expertise to be shared across professional and organisational and boundaries
  • Opportunities for sharing knowledge need to be actively created and fostered
  • Co-created knowledge helps us achieve results better than any one group could achieve alone
