International Day of Light (IDL): a new forum for interdisciplinary learning concepts in optics and photonics
Author(s): Dan Curticapean; Oliver Vauderwange; Benjamin Heitz

Paper Abstract

After the successful International Year of Light 2015, the idea of sustainability became increasingly imminent. After a preparatory year on 16 May 2018, the International Day of Light was launched for the first time. This event was celebrated with a public celebration in Paris at the UNESCO headquarters.

In this paper we will present our projects dedicated to the International Day of Light in Paris. Together with a group of students from our university, we had the special opportunity to be integrated in the program of the opening ceremony at UNESCO in Paris.

With our interdisciplinary projects we have tried to build a bridge between optics, photonics, art and media installations.
