The last few CM events took place in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in September 2017, Toulouse (France) in May 2018, Rotterdam (the Netherlands) in March 2019, and Oulu (Finland) in November 2019. The latest City under Microscope was hosted by Stavanger (Norway) and took place online 18-20 March 2021.

LUCI Asia Urban Lighting Workshop

The Asia Urban Lighting Workshop (AULW) is an annual regional workshop on sustainable urban lighting tailored for Asian cities in the LUCI network and beyond. It was organised for the first time in 2017, by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and LUCI, in collaboration with CityNet. The workshop aims to provide public lighting decision-makers in Asia an overview of the opportunities and benefits of sustainable urban lighting. It is a unique opportunity for Asian lighting professionals and decision-makers to meet and learn from urban lighting experts and engage in peer to peer knowledge, transfer and exchange of good practices and solutions through group discussions and analysis, interactive work sessions, networking and site visits. 

The 2023 edition of the LUCI Asia Urban Lighting Workshop took place in-person in Seoul from 19 to 21 September. Read the event’s highlights here.

Lyon Light Festival Forum

Each year, in conjunction with Lyon’s world-renowned Fête des Lumières and in partnership with the City of Lyon, LUCI Association organises the Lyon Light Festival Forum (LLFF). This event offers cities as well as lighting professionals from around the world a unique and original space to discuss and debate about new forms of creative lighting.

From 2014, the annual LLFF always welcomed participants to learn about various topics in person or online. Read more about past editions here.

The past edition of the Lyon Light Festival Forum took place in-person from 7 to 8 December 2023. Read the LLFF 2023’s highlights here.

LUCI Coffee Bre@ks

In order to engage with members, offer new learning experiences and maintain online the much loved “LUCI Family” atmosphere of our in person events, the LUCI Coffee Bre@ks were created. These short 30-minute regular online rendezvous sessions are an opportunity for members to stay in touch and hear from experts on a variety of urban lighting topics. Members have access to replays on the LUCI hub, our dedicated knowledge exchange platform.

LUCI “Sparking the Future of Urban Lighting” 2022

Through keynotes, roundtables and LUCI working group meetings, the 3-day event followed the keywords celebration, participation, and inspiration in order to build a common vision of the Future of Urban Lighting together.
