Who we are
Drink More…Water is the new campaign of Responsible Party.
Responsible Party was launched in 2009 and is the result of a unique partnership
between Erasmus Student Network (ESN), the biggest student association in Europe, and Pernod Ricard, the world’s second-largest wine and spirits seller in the world.
What is all about?
The programme aims at reducing alcohol-related harm and raising awareness about responsible alcohol consumption, through online campaigns and on the ground activations.
The programme is at the heart of the Sustainable and Responsible (S&R) strategy of Pernod Ricard who has a strong commitment to responsible drinking and believes that there can be no conviviality in excess.
Launch of the programme
Born from the idea that events are even better if they are enjoyed responsibly, Responsible Party has from the start been the leading pan-European program tackling binge drinking among young adults — and still is.
Collaboration with Lausanne
It all started as a collaboration between Pernod Ricard and the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne. The school was working on a compilation of best practices on responsible consumption during student events.
Partnership with ESN
Created in partnership with Erasmus Student Network, an EU-funded non-profit organization,Responsible Party is today a unique program which actively fights against the misuse of alcohol.
Getting young adults to drink more water!
To date, more than 470.100 students have experienced the Responsible Party phenomenon in 33 countries. This comes to millions of hours spent celebrating, dancing, socializing and maybe more importantly: creating memories. Through the Drink More Water digital campaign, we have reached more than 110 million people on 3 continents so far, and it’s still growing.*
Responsible Party was scientifically and independently evaluated by the French Foundation for Alcohol Research. More than 42,000 university students replied to the questionnaire.
