What does a rainy day taste like? Can you hear the fantasy of water in the rain? What will happen when the water lifted from China meets Archimedes screw pump in the West? What kinds of inspiration do designers have toward the Onymacris unguiculari in Namib Desert? Can children in Africa have water while playing?

A new cartoon produced in cooperation with the Amman Office in Jordan will be launched on the occasion of CIAK Junior Festival in Cortina, Italy, on 24 May 2013.
This series of animated cartoons features the famous Pet Pals and are based on short stories about water-related issues invented by children around the world. Using the universal language of cartoons they contribute to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) in a creative and effective way.
