Social Inclusion: A Sensitive Response Through Lighting Design
Date & Time

Session Survey
Who uses the public space and under which circumstances, how is it experienced, which level of freedom is perceived while in the public realm of a city? All these questions help to understand the level of social inclusion and openness a city may have, and consequently, the quality of life for its inhabitants. Generating a sense of inclusion through decisive design is at the core of an ethical response to the increasing global conditions of social segregation and inequality. This session will address how lighting can contribute to or contravene social cohesion in the public realm and which lighting design tools can be applied to enhance a buoyant, diverse, and inclusive public space.
