Thinking globally & acting locally


Experience shows that our global environmental problems can only be solved when they are considered individually and in great detail. The responsibility for our environment begins with each individual’s commitment. We will not be able to meet the global challenges of our future, unless each individual person will be contributing his or her share locally in everyday life. Considered from a global perspective the basic conditions for the supply of clean drinking water differ significantly from one another. The only thing in common is the fact that from the beginning clean drinking water marks the difference in quality of life and responsibility of a civilization towards its immediate environment. We do live in a world of limited resources: Not only energy, but also water will become scarce. Both, energy and water are directly related to each other thus exacerbating the conflict potential.
