To counter the looming water crisis in India, The Art of Living has been reviving rivers and other water resources through its water conservation initiatives. Through these efforts, people are being made aware of water conservation practices and the importance of the judicious use of natural resources like water.
The Art of Living devised a three-pronged approach for its river projects:
Provide local solutions in a scientific manner that mimic natural systems for restoring water.
Solve the immediate needs of giving people access to safe water and also create systems that ensure reliable supplies in the future.
Empower local communities through capacity building frameworks.
The head worries and the heart feels. They cannot function at the same time. When your feelings dominate, worry dissolves.
