IALD EXPLORING OPPORTUNITIES TO TAKE PART IN THE INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF LIGHT 2015
The IALD is delighted to share the enthusiasm of lighting designers across the globe for the International Year of Light 2015 (IYL 2015). In December 2013, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies to raise global awareness of the importance of light and its potential applications. Clearly, the IYL provides a remarkable opportunity for the lighting community to raise the profile of the architectural lighting design profession and grow the acknowledgement and appreciation of the power of light in human life. The IALD is committed to identifying opportunities to contribute to this important initiative, and we are pleased to note that the IALD is involved in active discussions with the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and other key stakeholders to develop a plan for participation. Updates on IALD participation in the IYL 2015 will be shared as they become available.
