March 22nd is World Water Day: and this here, is the most remarkable video that highlights it. #brilliant

“To mark World Water Day, on March 22nd Solidarités International and its agency BDDP Unlimited will roll out a campaign to build awareness of the scourge of undrinkable water.

Today, it is estimated that 3.6 million people, including 1.5 million children under the age of 5, die every year of diseases borne by unhealthy water, making it the world’s leading cause of death.

Yet the public isn’t aware of it and political leaders do not demonstrate the drive it takes to end the terrible deaths. The campaign calls on journalists to spread awareness of this scourge and appeal to readers to sign a petition that will be personally handed to the French president during the 6th World Water Forum in March 2012.

To evoke the silent and invisible threat of unhealthy water, BDDP Unlimited opted for a minimalist approach that is both visually appealing and surprising, using water and ink exclusively. The spot shows the power of ink to reveal the invisible.

The spot, created by BDDP Unlimited, produced by Hush and directed by Clément Beauvais, a young director, illustrator, musician and photographer. His multiple talents and mastery of various techniques enabled him to both create the drawings and direct the spot.

The campaign will be seen from mid-March on TV, in cinemas, on the Internet and in print. A dedicated web site,votregouttedeau.org, will gather signatures for the petition.”

The Last Resort by Slinkachu: great visuals for sea level discussions

Maybe a stretch, but these are cool nevertheless…

Water water everywhere. Great children’s book image on the subject of water.

This is great.

And this is also an image that seems appropriate when choosing to speak about water generally – it might, for instance, be a good prelude to discussions ranging from sea levels to water consumption.

Anyway, I’m generally pretty enamored with Satoshi Kitamura‘s work. This particular image comes from a great little book called Captain Toby, where a little boy in his house gets caught in a wind storm and then with the house swaying, starts to dream about his house being a boat, being caught in the ocean, and even at one point, duking it out with a giant squid. Anyway, lovely stuff.

Pee During Shower! Awesome video to save water from unnecessary flushing.

I especially like the bit with Stephen Hawkings…
