What are the best ways to stop wasting water?
maybe charging for it will add value so people are more conscious about useage?? Also, introducing individual grey watertanks for personal use so there is a more personal relationship with and respect for water useage including the use of pollutant products eg toilet fresheners,detergents, this mayalso personalise water care/responsibility use of, and the impact would be water saving on a huge global scale. There are schools of thought that talk about growing your personal garden from bathing water because plants have the ability to provide what an individual lacks if grown from seed in a particular way (see Ringing cedar series;Anastasia talks about how to grow seeds) which could be also seen as a bonus of grey water tanks. I see the ideology of water use as "out of sight, out of mind" turn the tap and it arrives, flush the loo...ultimately it is viewed as someone elses problem when its not at all.

How are we going to get Conscious Listening into schools?
from the perspective of a mother: turn off the computer in the classroom (or limit and define its use, it is afterall only mimicing the human brain) to facilitate conversations worthy of listening to... turn off the Tv at home, again to facilitate uplifting conversations, stop the anaesthetising of our childrens developing minds so they ask questions from a conscious level. There cannot be conscious listening without conscious conversation. Humans are dumbing down their owngift of being conscious in favour of computers and convenience. do we have to live more consciously and become more connected with ourselves in order to be available to others, particularly children, in the role of facilitator or teacher?? perhaps look at the STEINER philolosophy of learning??
