Veolia sponsors major exhibit at King’s Cross as part of Lumiere London 2016

We are pleased to announce we are sponsoring the Litre of Light exhibit – which is one of 30 artworks and installations at Lumiere London – to highlight how a simple technology can change thousands of people’s lives across the world.
Plastic bottles – that might otherwise have ended up in landfill – are being transformed into solar light bulbs to create a safe and sustainable source of light for people living without electricity in their homes.
Ahead of the festival, which runs from 14 to 17 January 2016, school children are being included in workshops to learn about the Litre of Light technology, resources and recycling around the world. They’re also discovering how to make their own light bulb from a recycled two litre plastic bottle.
The light bulbs created by the school children form part of the Litre of Light exhibit, designed by artist Mick Stephenson, with the help of Central Saint Martins’ students. Litre of Light is located at Central Saint Martins, Granary Square, King’s Cross London as part of Lumiere London which is open to the public.
