IDL Recognises Success in 2019 and Prepares for Bigger Celebrations in 2020

The International Day of Light (IDL) is an annual celebration of the importance of light science and technology to society in areas such as manufacturing, telecommunications, energy and healthcare. It is celebrated every year on the 16th May, the scientific anniversary of the first operation of the laser.

The IDL in 2019 was once again a tremendous success, celebrated globally with over 600 events in 70 countries, including a focus event on Illuminating Education held at the UNESCO Category I Institute ICTP in Trieste, Italy. These events combined reached an outstanding audience of more than 1.7 million!

The organisers are rapidly setting things up to prepare for the International Day of Light 2020. The central emphasis for 2020 will be on grassroots events, and the organisers are aiming for a target of one thousand events worldwide! This ambitious goal will allow IDL to communicate with a wide range of different target audiences, and to stress the key messages of how light science and technology can help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and how light art and culture can enrich society.
