Did you know that millions of people worldwide suffer from light poverty and have no access to light at home even during the day? The global “Liter of Light” movement provides technology to these people and shows them how to make solar lamps from recycled plastic bottles to light their communities.
These lead to an enormous increase in their quality of life, as the lighting systems both create safety on the streets and allow people to engage in activities of any kind after dusk.
As INVENSITY, we are setting an example by participating in the “Liter of Light” movement and would like to raise awareness of the issue of light poverty. Therefore, we not only support the movement financially with donations, but also enable our employees to make a difference directly on the ground.
The “Liter of Light” movement in Brazil was even initiated by one of our former employees, Leonardo Uematsu. Despite the challenges the Corona pandemic brings, we continue to work together to provide support.
Globally, “Liter of Light” has already reached more than 1 million people. Moreover, this work has been recognized by major awards such as the UN’s World Habitat Awards and the Zayed Energy Prize, considered the Nobel Prize for sustainable energy.
