Can light make a difference in a crisis?
Ever thought how lighting could help in a crisis or emergency? Or how it could save someone’s life? This year we received more than 300 brilliant and creative entries showing how light can make a difference in a crisis.
Community Lighting for the Urban Environment (CLUE) is an annual competition aimed at young and emerging lighting designers, challenging them to design meaningful projects for communities around the world.
Supported by the Signify Lighting Academy, CLUE invites the aspiring designers to consider pressing societal issues and envision innovative design projects. This year’s competition theme was ‘Exploring the role of light in emergencies’.
The task was to show how light can make a difference in places and situations where people feel vulnerable, such as conflicts, or times of disruption and environmental crisis. It also asked if there is a role for light to help prevent or manage a crisis?
