Today the IALD celebrates Chase the Dark 2022! Chase the Dark is an annual one-day global celebration of light that begins in Australia and makes its way across each time zone moving west celebrating the power of light together.
The annual feel-good social movement aims to unify the lighting community worldwide. Open to everyone for participation, this year’s theme of “Only Light Where You Need It” encourages us to use light wisely with as little impact to our environment as possible. Make creations and designs with colorful tape and other UV reactive materials and then use UV light to make them pop with a neon vibe!
Light pollution, energy waste and sustainable manufacturing are problems that need to be addressed within the lighting community. The IALD is working together with policy makers, manufacturers and education establishments on best practices for environmental sustainability.
Find your local region or chapter event on our website and join in the fun in-person or join virtually by adding photos or videos of your creations on Instagram and Twitter using #IALDChaseDark.
