EWS has an integrative training unit in order to foster and educate the next Water Stewardship experts throughout consultancies, certification bodies, businesses and associations. This training unit is responsible for ensuring the integral implementation of EWS and raising awareness on the EWS standard and Water Stewardship. Here’s what some people had to say about the EWS trainings:

“Very engaging trainers answered all my questions thoroughly and created an open environment for discussion.”

“The session on the concept of Water Stewardship was by far the most valuable for me including exercises which allowed me to dig deeper into what that concept means.”

“I very much appreciated being able to become more familiar with the EWS standard and its implementation in an interactive manner.”

NEW: Introduction to the EWS Standard E-Learning

This e-learning course provides a quick overview of water stewardship and its key principles; outlines the concept and context for water stewardship; and describes the European Water Stewardship (EWS) standard - a tool to help implement sustainable water management practices on-site.

The course is divided into topics explaining each of the four core principles of the EWS standard and their associated criteria and indicators. The course also provides practical steps on how to become a good water steward and what steps are involved in achieving EWS standard certification.
