LightLinks: Developments and competition updates
The entries will be judged by a panel of representatives from Thorn, LUCI and CLSF, along with lighting experts from cities that have been involved in international lighting co-operation projects.
The selected project partnership will benefit from lighting equipment and project support services from Thorn up to a value of €20 000, lighting design expertise from CLSF, coordination and support for on-site visits from LUCI, as well as international communication and promotion from Thorn and LUCI.
LightLinks is a sponsorship initiative set up by Thorn and the Lighting Urban Community International (LUCI) network to develop and support local government cooperation for sustainable urban lighting projects. The project is based on a partnership between two cities: the beneficiary city, in a developing country and the partner city, from a more developed country. Together they draw up a lighting program for the beneficiary city aiming for long term social and economic improvements.
Launched in 2007, the two LightLinks projects to date include Lyon (France)/Jericho (Palestine), completed and inaugurated in May 2011, and Glasgow (UK)/Amathole (South Africa).
