LUCI Annual General Meeting Montpellier

24 – 26 April 2024

Welcome words from Montpellier

We are delighted to invite the LUCI network to Montpellier for its Annual General Meeting. The 7th largest city in France, Montpellier is a dynamic, innovative city where culture plays an important role. That’s why we have joined forces with 154 local authorities to apply to become the European Capital of Culture in 2028.

Montpellier is also known and recognised for its university teaching quality and world-class research ecosystem, which is linked to the major areas of economic development in our metropolis (ecology, health, etc.). Montpellier is a city steeped in history yet deeply committed to the future—a future it is building around the ecological transition of its territory. On December 21, 2023, at 7:00 p.m., Montpellier will become the largest European metropolis to provide a free public transport network for all its inhabitants.

In Montpellier, we are also working on lighting and darkness policies in a cross-cutting way to understand various issues better. We need to consider environmental issues such as reducing energy consumption and protecting biodiversity. As we develop dark infrastructures, we will reduce our carbon footprint and protect nature. Finally, the aesthetics of the city are of paramount importance when it comes to the lighting equipment in the public realm. 

We are therefore delighted to invite you to LUCI’s annual meeting. This event will enable us to address the link between urban lighting and environmental issues through conferences, debates, and practical exercises.

We hope you enjoy your stay in Montpellier. See you on April 24, 25, and 26, 2024!

Mayor of Montpellier,
President of Montpellier Mediterranean Metropolis

Montpellier is pleased to invite you to a sensory experience: tours, exhibitions, debates, board games, conferences, tastings… There will be something for everyone!

With its Lighting Plan, the Metropolis of Montpellier is committed to both sustainability and luminous aesthetics. That’s why we invite you to reflect on preserving the sky and the environment while enhancing our quality of life.

We will work, study, and plan concrete cases to stimulate your brainpower during these spring days. Exchanging experiences, ideas, and themes will enrich us with your skills and knowledge.

We need you and look forward to meeting and exchanging with you soon in Montpellier.

Clare HART,
Vice President of Montpellier Mediterranean Metropolis
for International Outreach and European Cooperation

Municipal and Metropolitan Delegate Councillor
