2015 is the International year of light, endorsed by the UNESCO Executive Board and the UNESCO General Conference and we are gold sponsor. It is a unique opportunity to inspire, educate and connect on a global scale.
The international year of light (IYL2015) is a global initiative to highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the sustainable development of society. The applications of light technology have revolutionized society through medicine, communications, entertainment and culture. To this end our mission is “Social Innovation through lighting”. Respecting the environment and creating organic well-being and sustainable economies, these are the factors we need to work on at a global level to implement real, progress in society. Lighting is first and foremost for people.
The IYL2015 Opening Ceremony will be held at UNESCO HQ in the iconic “Fontenoy Building” near the Eiffel Tower over the two day period 19-20 January 2015.
