mondo*arc and darc magazines have joined Lighting-Related Organizations (L-RO), part of the United Nations - International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 (IYL2015), and will be launching a special event, darc night, as part of the celebrations.

Details are yet to be revealed for darc night, but mondo*arc and darc publisher Paul James commented, “We are very pleased to be part of the L-RO, such a progressive organization for the promotion of light. We will be adding to the program with darc night, our own special celebration and we are extremely excited about the concept. All will be revealed soon!”

L-RO represent a broad global professional community of people who work with light and lighting in the built environment. In particular, the representatives of 30 associations, collectives, universities, events and media from 20 countries formed L-RO in April 2014 with the keen interest in the public recognition of lighting design and education, that is embodied in the IYL2015.

L-RO will be organizing IYL2015 related activities with respective organizations and in respective areas of expertise and location, to raise awareness for the lighting design profession and showcase the importance and beauty of light.

In order to take a strong and concrete step forward to create a dynamic movement, L-RO has issued a Call for Ideas for events to frame the general concept of the IYL2015.

The aim of the Call is to generate a collective programme of activities and initiatives between the L-RO and have a larger and more impactful movement towards achieving the goal of raising awareness for Lighting Design and support the ‘Right to Light’. L-RO will co-ordinate all events in a general Activities Program, ensure the quality and message of the ideas is coherent and consistent globally and support the individual event by finding a co-organizer or getting in touch with partners for a tour in different countries.

By participating in the Call for Ideas, Lighting-Related People will join their voices to show how lighting design is fundamental, how our profession can enhance the everyday life, how to be enlightened! The IYL2015 is a big occasion for the recognition and the strategic value of Lighting Design and Education. L-RO need the commitment of the professionals, individuals or groups, who will increase the participation and contribute with their events.

All the ideas included in the official General Activities Programme by L-RO will have international spread, through the members of L-RO, will be given privileged publication opportunities in the press and general media coverage from all over the world.

Let's #LightUp2015!
