- Water must be managed sustainably: Water resources management and education are crucial for providing tomorrow’s children with social and economic stability in a healthy and sustainable environment.
- Water depends on personal responsibility and action: Awareness of and respect for water resources can encourage a personal, lifelong commitment of responsibility and positive community participation.
