International Year of Light


About IYL 2015

The International Year of Light is a global initiative which will highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society.

The International Year of Light will consist of coordinated activities on national, regional and international levels.

Activities will be planned so that people of all ages and all backgrounds from all countries appreciate the central role of light in science and culture, and as a cross-cutting scientific discipline that can advance sustainable development.

We are proposing the International Year of Light for the year 2015.
