Good Light Group at the Daylight Academy

By Virginie Gabel


Two weeks ago, a congress, organized by the DLA - Daylight Academy, took place at the “École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – EPFFL”! Expert panels were set up to deepen our understanding of the effects of light on the human body. Light, as a natural resource, plays a vital role in our physical and mental well-being.



We were invited to the congress where we actively participated by organizing a booth and a workshop. Our main goal was to raise awareness about our concrete actions already done by the group and strengthen our communication in the field.


Through our booth, we presented in-depth information about the different type of light and their impact on our circadian rhythm, sleep, mood, and productivity. We also highlighted the advantages of regular exposure to natural light and different methods to incorporate it into our modern lives often dominated by artificial light. Participants received infographics about how to use and try good light and we could also share our brand-new version of the Good Light Guide!


The workshop we conducted allowed participants first to learn more about all the actions undertaken by the Group and second to share their experiences of good light. In a second phase, we organized a brainstorming session about how to improve our communication to reach a maximum of people and provide them with practical guidance on optimizing their lighting environment. We received a lot of nice suggestions and insights for new projects that we will seriously consider.


“Light is a powerful tool for improving our health and well-being, and we are proud to be part of this mission.”
