Social Limitations of Sustainable Water Consumption
When we talk about the necessity of ecologically sound behaviour we often complain about the gap between environmental consciousness and ecological behaviour. Rather than trying to improve pedagogic concepts, we should be thinking about the following central questions: is the gap between environmental consciousness and ecological behaviour an individual problem of a lack of self-discipline or is it a structural problem? Is it possibly a mental block resulting from a conflict between wishes and abilities? I would like to present my thoughts in the form of seven theses, taking our problems with water as an example.
