Lighting-Related Organizations (L-RO) aims to be a clearinghouse for International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 of ideas and activities for all the involved organizations from around the globe.  

L-RO is pleased to invite their members to participate in a new strategy to promote, present and celebrate the lighting design profession and education. In order to take a strong and concrete step forward to create a dynamic movement, L-RO wishes to Call for Ideas for events to frame the general concept of the IYL2015.

The aim of this Call is to generate a collective programme of activities and initiatives between the L-RO members and have a larger and more impactful movement towards achieving our goals for IYL2015: raising awareness for Lighting Design and support the “Right to Light”. L-RO will co-ordinate all events in a general Activities Program, ensure the quality and message of the ideas and support the individual events by finding a co-organizer, or getting in touch with partners for a tour in different countries. This is not an open call, but people outside of L-RO that wish to present an idea, can contact their relative organization, to request they apply to be included in L-RO. In the case that such organization doesn’t exist locally, applicants could become individual members of L-RO.

By participating in the Call for Ideas, Lighting-Related People will join their voices to show how lighting design and education is fundamental, how lighting designers can improve the everyday life, how to be enlightened! The IYL2015 is a terrific occasion for the recognition and the strategic value of Lighting Design and Education. Let’s #LightUp2015!

All the ideas included in the official General Activities Programme by L-RO 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. More information at www.l-ro.org

What are Lighting-Related Organizations

Lighting-Related Organizations (L-RO) represent a broad global professional community of people who work with light and lighting in the built environment. In particular, the representatives of 30 associations, collectives, universities, events and media from 20 countries formed L-RO in April 2014 with the keen interest in the public recognition of lighting design and education, that is embodied in the United Nations -International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 (IYL2015).

Managed entirely on a volunteer basis, the L-RO effort is a global repository of IYL 2015 events and activities related to light in the built environment.
