2019 Workshop: The Ways to Make Your City More Livable through Lighting

Invitation to ‘2019 Asia Urban Lighting Workshop’

– The Ways to Make Your City More Livable through Lighting –

We are very pleased to invite you to the ‘2019 Asia Urban Lighting Workshop’ in Seoul, Korea June 25-28, 2019 organized by Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) and LUCI (Lighting Urban Community International).

After starting with the endeavors to activate exchanges among who are engaging in urban lighting in Asian cities since 2017, the 2018 Asia Urban Lighting Workshop brought together city representatives from 23 cities of 16 nations in June last year and concluded successfully with the dedicated participation of each lighting professional.

At this time, we will look over some of ways which might be useful to make your city more livable through lighting so that it could light your thought up and even give some inspirations to the cities. Under the vision of improving Quality of Life and sustainable development by adapting appropriate lightings in each city, the theme of the workshop is classified into 3 ways.

One way is to use the artistic and vibrant aspect of urban lightings especially applicable to a lighting festival and lighting in cultural heritage sites. Moreover, increasing city safety and decreasing light pollution are another way to make your city a better place. For sustainable urban development, most of all, being eco-friendly is an indispensable way.

Let us get this unique platform to learn about city’s cases and get inspired from meaningful lectures and interactive sessions. And, finally, it will offer a chance to get a new idea to be applied in our own cities, and also  be a bridge that can connect cities which have different backgrounds so give the cities a foundation of the future exchanges and cooperation.

Should you have any inquiries that you would like to bring up at the workshop, please do not hesitate to contact us at aulw2019@thegdfactory.com (2019 Asia Urban Lighting Workshop Secretariat) and lroa.tc@seoul.go.kr  (LUCI Regional Office for Asia).

📣UNITAR CIFAL Jeju is holding a #VirtualWorkshop series on #SocialProtection, with a spotlight on #InformalWorkers. The event will take place on three sessions from March 18-25, at 3 PM KST.

While fighting the spread of #COVID19, countering measures like lockdowns and social distancing have affected informal workers disproportionately, who suffered from a higher risk of falling into extreme #poverty, as their economic activities were severely disrupted by those measures.

Informal workers usually work in poor occupational safety and health surroundings with poor access to social protection services. They are easily exposed to the risk of illness and injury. Even before the pandemic, access to healthcare was almost out of reach for these workers because the cost of such services was far too high for their earning.

This virtual event will discuss various approaches to social protection with a focus on informal workers in the pandemic situation, and explore how social protection can be applied in different contexts. Participants will be given an opportunity to share their own case studies and get engaged in designing #ActionPlans for better implementation of social protection strategies in line with their own national and local context.
