Happy Anniversary LUCI Charter: over 11 years of promoting sustainability in urban lighting
The LUCI Charter on Urban Lighting aims to bring cities together around common principles in lighting and to mark the network’s commitment to sustainable development. It was adopted on 15 September 2010 by LUCI members gathered for the Annual General Meeting in Chartres (France).
This Charter aims to give a clear view of the issues that should be taken into account by sustainable lighting strategies, while simultaneously gathering LUCI members around a common vision of urban lighting.
The LUCI Charter addresses challenges common to all: energy efficiency, improvement of the quality of life, maintenance, recycling, light pollution, the cultural and social dimensions of lighting… Above all, it provides a reference framework within which towns and cities can develop their own lighting strategies.
It is the product of contributions from more than 40 cities around the world and more than a year of work led within the network by the City of Leipzig.
More than 60 cities have committed to the LUCI Charter. Recent signatories include cities as diverse as Oulu (Finland) and Dakar (Senegal), joining historic LUCI members such as Lyon, Ghent and Glasgow.
