How can we do better with less light?
The energy crisis has sparked urgent discussions about light in the city. But the status quo of urban lighting has been increasingly questioned from other perspectives as well, such as the ecological, health and social-cultural perspective. Urban lighting needs to go into transition: “How can we do better with less light?” To find answers to this question, we need to broaden the scope on urban lighting far beyond visual performance linked to categories of outdoor space.

Wide range of viewpoints, presentations, discussions and light performance
GLOW Interact brings together experts from a wide range of viewpoints, such as ecology, health, art, policy, urban design and more. Together we seek new synergies between these perspectives. Next to lectures and discussion, we feature the presentation of the GlowLab ‘Cathedral of Light’ and the light performance ‘Perspectives’.
