    • 1. * Comenius Multilateral School partnership: “Waterborne identities”
    • 2. Índex Report on a typical student's use of water. - Questionnaire I: Personal water consumption - Questionnaire II: Family water consumption - Questionnaire III: Knowledge on water consumption Reflecting on the use of water. Survey's conclusions. Suggesting changes for dealing with water in the future.
    • 3. Questionnaire I: Personal water consumption 1. How often do you wash hands during the day? 2. Are you conscious about water loss in your home? 3. How much water do you drink per day? 4. How many times do you have a bath/a shower?
    • 4. 1. How often do you wash hands during the day? 12-15 years old 30% 16-18 years old 2% 1% 40% 68% 59% Adults 16% Never Once or twice 3 times or more 84%
    • 5. 2. Are you conscious about water loss in your home? 100% Most of the people are conscious about water loss in their house, so they turn off the tap and pay attention when it's dripping. 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% No Yes 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% 12-15 Y/O 16-18 Y/O Adults
    • 6. 3. How much water do you drink per day? 60% Average 50% 12-15 years old 16-18 years old Adults 40% 2 1.8 1.6 1.4 30% 1.2 1 20% 0.8 0.6 10% 0% 0.4 0.2 1L 2L More than 2L 0
    • 7. 4. How many times do you have a bath/a shower? 100% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% 0.02 0.07 0.06 0.13 0.28 0.18 0.65 0.69 0.7 0.7 0.22 0.24 0.02 0.19 more than 7 times 5-7 times 1-4 0.58 times 0 times 0.05 (Shower) (Bath) (Bath) 12-15 Y/O 16-18 Y/O 0.23 (Shower) Adults (Bath or shower)
    • 8. Conclusions Questionnaire I Considering the results of the questionnaire, in the section of personal water consumption, generally, people consume almost the same range of water. But over the years, even adults are more conscious of the bad effects of wasting water, as older we get we need more water for personal use. So that’s why students between 16 and 18 years old and adults are the ones who use more water for personal consumption.
    • 9. Questionnaire II: Family water consumption 1. Do you have a water filtration system at home? 2. Does your washing machine have a programme for saving water? 3. How much does your family pay for water per year?
    • 10. 1. Do you have a water filtration system at home? 12-15 Y/O They don't know No, they haven't Yes, they have 16-18 Y/O ADULTS 0 20 40 60 80 100
    • 11. 2. Does your washing machine have a programme for saving water? 16 -18 Y/O 12-15 Y/O 41% 21% 38% They have They don't have They don't know 28% 19% ADULTS They have They don't 49% have They don't know 38% 13% They have They don't 53% have They don't know
    • 12. 3. How much does your family pay for water per year? 45.00% 40.00% As we can see, approximately the 65% of families pay between 100 and 300€ for water, and the average of how much all they pay is around 250€ per year. 35.00% 30.00% 25.00% 20.00% 15.00% 10.00% 5.00% 0.00% 100-200€ 300-400€ 100 € 200-300€ More than 400€ *We have only considered the answers of adults, because teenagers don’t know it.
    • 13. Conclusions Questionnaire II As we’ve seen before, most of the surveyed people have a water filtration system at home and their washing machine have a programme for saving water. Paying an average of 250€ per year of water (meaning 20€ aprox. per month) is not that much and it means people take care not to waste water at home.
    • 14. Questionnaire III: Knowledge on water consumption 1. What is more water consuming, a bath or a shower? 2. How long could you survive without water? 3. Why do you have to pay much for water? 4. Why does tap water have different tastes in different regions? 5. Reasons why we should save water. 6. Possibilities to reduce water consumption 7.
    • 15. 1. What is more water consuming, a bath or a shower? 100% 90% It depends on the time that the water runs (which is determined by who is having a bath or a shower), but generally a bath is more water consuming, so most of people have answered right. 80% 70% 60% Shower Bath 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% 12-15 Y/O 16-18 Y/O Adults
    • 16. 2. How long could you survive without water? 12-15 Y/O 16-18 Y/O ADULTS 0% 0.28 0.24 0.16 0.23 0.17 0.05 0.36 0.24 0.57 0.1 0.13 0.25 0.22 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% One day More than three days Two days They don't know Three days Generally we can survive 3 days without water, but it depends on each person's body condition. As we can see, not too many people know that: only around 50% of people come near the right answer.
    • 17. 3. Why do you have to pay much for water? 12-15 Y/O 0.2 0.8 0.7 16-18 Y/O 0.3 0.28 ADULTS 0.72 We have to pay that much for water because of the costs of purification, extraction, transmission, distribution and other costs needed to make water able to be drunk. Taxes are also a reason why we pay that much for it. 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% They know They don't know * These results are done considering the meaning of the reasons in the answers.
    • 18. 4. Why does tap water have different tastes in different regions? 100% The reasons why water has different tastes in different regions are because of its origin (rivers, canals, etc), its type and concentration of salts and also because of the chemical treatment given to water in each location. 80% 60% They don't know They know 40% 20% 0% 12-15 Y/O ADULTS * These results are done considering the meaning of the reasons in the answers.
    • 19. 5. Reasons why we should save water 12-15 years old 50% 50% 16-18 years old They know 31% They don't know According the results of the surveys, saving water normally reduces energy use and costs of pumping and distributing water. It helps the environment and maintains better conditions for millions of humans and creatures in the world. Saving water wisely, can also save a lot of money. 69% Adults 18% 82% * These results are done considering the meaning and number of reasons in the answers.
    • 20. 6. Possibilities to reduce water consumption 12-15 years old A few great possibilities we found in the surveys: 47% 53% 16-18 years old They know 31% They don't know 69% Adults 18% 82% - Have a short shower instead of a bath - Have a full load when you wash our clothes - Fill the dishwasher before putting it on and use the eco setting - Put a save-a-flush in your cistern - it will save one liter of water per flush. - Purchase water efficient appliances - Install a water butt to collect rainwater, and use it to water your garden or wash your car.
    • 21. Conclusions Questionnaire III According the results, the youngest people surveyed and adults are the ones who know the most about water consumption. For unknown reasons, students between 16 and 18 years old have the poorest knowledge on why we have to pay that much for water, why tap water have different tastes in each region or why we should save water. But as an average of this section, taking into account all the people surveyed, 65% of the people have answered right.
    • 22. Suggesting changes for dealing with water in the future. Millions of people all around the world are affected by the lack of water. Therefore we need to change our practices and attitudes to conserve it in our future. Improving our education related to water models consumption and lifestyle would be the best start to avoid the waste of water. If we all try not to waste water in our home, garden, car or personal use, water’s situation would gently change for the good over time. If we start having a short shower instead of a bath, tr y not to make taps drip, install water-saving shower heads and low-flow faucet aerators, don't run the hose while washing the car, install a water butt to collect rainwater, and use it to water your garden or wash your car , etc. we’ll together be able to make the world so much better.
    • 23. Suggesting changes for dealing with water in the future. On a large scale, government should intervene and look for new technologies to conser ve and store water. It would be great to reuse wastewater, improve irrigation and farming practices and fight against the environment . All these changes, with the help of a strong will by all of us, would definitely avoid serious problems in our future. So why don’t we try to make a change? Small changes are the ones which make huge differences.
