UNESCO endorses annual International Day of Light

ICFO, as co-founder and acting coordinator of the ECOP alliance (European Centres for Outreach in Photonics), will participate and have an acting role on the steering committee of the new International Day of Light, to be proclaimed at the General Conference of UNESCO in November 2017 and celebrated for the first time on May 16, 2018.

Building on the success of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015, the International Day of Light will help to provide an annual focal point for the appreciation of the role that light plays in the lives of the citizens of the world in areas of science, culture, education, sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications and energy. The broad theme of light will allow many different sectors of society to participate in activities around the world to raise awareness of science and technology, art and culture, and their importance in achieving the goals of UNESCO — education, equality and peace.
