The International Day of Light provides a unique opportunity for people from diverse backgrounds to come together and explore how light-based technologies can contribute to addressing global challenges. This year’s theme, “Light in Our Lives,” highlights the profound impact of light on our daily experiences and its potential to advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

At the event, promoted by the Atlantic Technological University in the framework of the WP5, we will delve into the significance of light in science, culture, art, education, and sustainable development. Through discussions and presentations we aim to raise awareness about the crucial role of light in improving lives and achieving a more sustainable future.
