The press actively participated in the promotion of the Launch event. Announcement of the EWS Launch event were published on the 6th World Water Forum webpage, the Foundation for Water Research website and other organizations actively participating in sustainable water management programs.
After the Launch, reports and articles could be found not only in public and private domains such as the European Commission webpage, BASF SE website or Europolitics digital magazine but also in blogs and social media. The European Crop Protection Association (ECPA) published in their news-site the commitment to introduce the EWS standard in all their European sites. In the other side of the digital spectrum, the blogger Céline Hervé-Bazin reflects the day after the launch on the term stewardship and remarks the “down-to-earth opening speech” of the launch event.
