IYL 2015 and Beyond : Perspectives on Communication

Join Lighting-Related Organizations founder Chiara Carucci and IALD Public Policy consultant John Martin as they discuss the International Year of Light 2015 (IYL 2015).  The session will focus on how lighting organizations are using IYL 2015 to communicate more powerfully than ever the wonder, impact and importance of light for human endeavors and for the built environment.  In the tenth month of IYL 2015, what changes have we seen in how both lay persons and lighting professionals think about and talk about light and lighting?  We will share fun examples of IYL 2015 activities and discuss implications for how best to communicate about light in 2016 and beyond.
