Enlightened Futures: How Responsibility Will Guide the Future of Light and Buildings
"We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.” - George Bernard Shaw
As lighting professionals, we have the power to shape the way people experience the world around them. We can create environments that evoke emotions, convey a message or a memorable experience and enhance the overall aesthetic of a space. However, with this creative power comes great responsibility. We must also consider factors such as energy efficiency, sustainability, safety, inclusivity and functionality. This requires a balance between technical expertise and artistic vision, and it is our duty to take this responsibility seriously to produce exceptional results that benefit both our clients, the users of the spaces and the environment. Now is the time to consider the wider world and take responsibility for how we impact it - Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance are becoming familiar terms that enable us to share values and efforts towards ensuring our impact is considered and verifiable. THINKLIGHT Conference 2024 will focus on key industry topics from this perspective.
Meet Our Esteemed Speakers
Hear it from our past speakers and attendees
“Sometimes as lighting designers we talk about immersive experiences as being in a light installation, but there is nothing more immersive than being in a room full of lighting talent, listening and engaging in great talks and discussions. For me the LIGHTALKS were a highly immersive and thought-provoking experience. Congratulations to all involved!”
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Light Talks sessions at Light Middle East - both as a speaker and a member of the audience. The range of topics covered many of the key subjects at the heart of the lighting design profession. It was great to see so many people, from all over the Middle East and the world, gathered together and collaborating to share knowledge.”
“I have enjoyed being at the show this year. Overall, the show has exceeded my expectations. It was fun and nice to meet with so many friends from around the world. It was a real surprise to see the variety and quality manufacturers showcasing their products. I hope that all designers give a broader thought on how to design better to preserve the night sky and how to be thoughtful in their designs in considering the dark.”
