Capital Urbanism Lab Event: Capital Illumination Workshop


Tuesday, March 31, 6 pm to 9 pm

The National Capital Commission (NCC) invites you to attend a workshop to assist in the development of an illumination plan for the core of Canada’s Capital.

This presentation will highlight UNESCO’s 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, which is raising global awareness about how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health.

Workshop participants will be invited to discuss the mission and objectives of the NCC’s Capital Illumination Plan, identify specific sites that should be illuminated, and complete a survey.

The workshop will include the following:

6 pm
Introductions by Dr. Mark Kristmanson, CEO of the NCC
