International Day of Light - May 16th

International Day of Light - May 16th

The International Day of Light (May 16th) is an international initiative that provides an annual focal point about the role that the broad therm of LIGHT plays in science, culture and art, education, sustainable development, and diverse fields as medicine, communications, and energy. This is also an UNESCO event.

Unfortunately, this year most of the very interesting events usually organized all over the word had to be cancelled or switched to on-line activities.

Since this is an important event for us, the Photonics community, we invite you to take a look to the UNESCO webpage: https://www.lightday.org/about and see the video they prepared about how photonic technologies are improving our daily lives in four main areas: healthcare, clean energy, communications and sustainable agriculture: https://www.lightday.org/seethelight.
