16. September 2021: Lysets Dag / Lighting day
Danish Lighting Center
Danish Lighting Center (DCL) is your direct access to the Danish lighting community in whole.
The center is a non-profit association for about 700 lighting professionals and has existed since 1948. Our members are lighting manufacturers, researchers, engineering companies, architects etc. Our mission is promoting the use of good and appropriate lighting, and to disseminate lighting knowledge to the benefit of society.
Most of our communication is in Danish, but our annual national conference ‘Lysets Dag’ (‘Lighting day’) has half of the speakers and many exhibitors speaking English.
THE CITY OF COPENHAGEN’S ACTION PLAN FOR THE SUBSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
70% of the world’s population is expected to live in cities by 2050. A sustainable world therefore starts with sustainable cities.
All 17 SDGs are relevant to metropolises, and with Goal 11 on sustainable cities, the world’s cities have been given a key role in achieving the goals by 2030. This applies not least to Denmark, which is at the forefront when it comes to decentralization. No less than 64 % of public expenditure is administrated by municipalities and regions, which places Denmark in third place globally in terms of economic decentralization according to the OECD.
The City of Copenhagen looks forward to working together with other Danish municipalities, regions and the Danish government on the SDGs. Copenhagen aims to work together with global metropolises, sharing solutions and inspiring efforts to realize the overarching goal on a more sustainable world by 2030.
