International panel discussion:

Social lighting as a tool to improve quality of life in cities


As a natural bridge between man and his environment, light has an impact on both individual behaviors and social development of the city. Beyond functional usage, how do we use light to improve quality of life in all the diversity of urban spaces? To build public lighting policies of the future, how can we engage with citizens on lighting?
