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).

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
