Life exists on Earth because there is light. We often take for granted that the Sun will rise each morning and set each night. Without much thought, we flick a switch to illuminate our interiors with electric light and see road lights automatically turn on after dark. Because light surrounds us almost constantly, we risk overlooking its importance in achieving significant societal goals, such as those encapsulated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Applying a better understanding of light and lighting to education, daily habits, agriculture, healthcare, commerce, and ecology will contribute to making the world more beautiful, equitable, healthy, and sustainable. Discover how in this presentation celebrating the International Day of Light 2024!

The International Commission on Illumination (CIE) is the principal gathering place for the world’s lighting community, bridging the realms of science and art, standards and practice, in all aspects of light and lighting.
