The Récylum Sustainable Light Trophy

Récylum Sustainable Light Trophy rewards eco-responsible installations

Every year, by promoting sustainable projects, the Festival of Lights makes good on its pledge to make artists and visitors alike aware that illuminating the city's magnificent heritage is compatible with an eco-responsible attitude.

This trophy recognizes the installation that best combines creativity, innovation, and sustainability. It is awarded by the City of Lyon in partnership with Recylum, a non-profit environmental organization that collects and recycles used light bulbs in France. Eight eco-friendly installations have been short-listed for the prize.
