    Active listening is engaging and makes the other person in conversation more lively. Active listening encourages the other person to open up more and making them to be well understood which might not be the case if we don't show any interest in their conversation.

    Through schools, encourage knowledge on water conservation to kids which inturn will pass to their parents. Usage of social media effectively with fun facts and humor but serious information should be employed to inform public. Apps in the cellphones will be more effective way to communicate since most of the community members have one now a days.
