Official Activities Program | L-RO for IYL2015

last update 23 November 2014

The organization included in L-RO invited their members to participate in a Call for Ideas, to generate a collective programme of activities and initiatives for the IYL2015. The events cover social, technical, educational, cultural and artistic approach to the light and its technology. Some Ideas are worthwhile and replicable elsewhere, so these will become a format and will help other colleagues in raising awareness for Lighting Design!

All the selected proposals will have international spread, through the members of L-RO, will be given privileged publication opportunities in the press and general media coverage from all over the world, in 2015. The Official Activities Program by L-RO for IYL2015 includes these events and the already planned activities by L-RO associations and universities.

The International Year of Light 2015 will be a terrific occasion for the recognition of the strategic value of Lighting Design and Education.


Lighting-Related Organizations | L-RO

last update 23 November 2014

Lighting-Related Organizations (L-RO) represent the broad global professional community of people who work with light and lighting in the built environment. In particular, Lighting Design is a profession with special qualities, knowledge and competences that gives its practitioners a unique field of work, not incorporated in any other profession.

The body of know-how and experience of Lighting Designers incorporates the understanding and application of the physics of light, photometric calculation and measurements, design skills, project management, collaboration with multidisciplinary teams, use of the latest technology and social responsibilities regarding the impact of light on humans, economy and the environment. Lighting designers and lighting educators are also key figures in educating the public about light, lighting quality, and the interactions of light and human behavior, comfort, and productivity.
