Towards a new strategy

L-RO look forward to organizing IYL2015 related activities with our respective organizations and in our respective areas of expertise and location, to raise awareness for our profession and showcase the importance and beauty of light. Each organization included in 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 wish to Call for Ideas for events to frame the general concept of the IYL2015.

Call for ideas objectives

The aim of this Call is to generate a collective programme of activities and initiatives between the L-RO and have a larger and more impactful movement towards achieving our goal:

  • Raising awareness for Lighting Design.
  • Support the “Right to Light”.

L-RO commitments

  • Co-ordinate all events in a general Activities Program.
  • Ensure the quality and message of the ideas is coherent and consistent globally.
  • Support the individual event by finding a co-organizer.
  • 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 ask them 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 is fundamental, how our profession can enhance the everyday life, how to be enlightened!
