Together with Annukka Larsen

The speakers will dive deep into the roots of a successful large-scale urban lighting strategy. Jyväskylä is the only city in Finland to have a lighting coordinator to guide the lighting process from the concept phase to the maintenance of the realised urban lighting. Over the years many tests and lighting trials have been undertaken to help citizens and municipal decision-makers understand the value of purposefully designed lighting.
