Street Lighting Workshop in Seoul Seoul, R.O.Korea29-30 June

Street lighting is often regarded as a public good, as it is a crucial element of urban infrastructure. It is an important public service that local authorities need to provide to ensure adequate lighting on roads, which leads to enhanced safety and security in the city, apart from improving visibility during evenings and night. The use of energy efficient lamps has great potential to save costs due to reduction in electricity consumption. With new energy efficient lighting technologies, such as LEDs (light-emitting diodes), streetlights represent one of the most cost-effective opportunities for energy savings and for reducing municipalities’ energy costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Climate Change workshop/Climate Leadership programJakarta, IndonesiaTBD

This workshop is expected to build cross-sectoral collaboration that complies with the complexity of the city problems as well as to develop a systematic understanding over potential threats. With the formation of The Leaders Network, it is hoped that the network will maintain communication and sharing experiences in applying innovative acts to their own municipalities as well as develop possible collaborative initiatives under climate change impact topics.
