In the modern word, complexity and uncertainty seem ever-present. How do we maintain relative order and a sense of calm? We rely on the power of interconnectivity. When different systems, processes ans people work seamlessly in conjunction with one another, this is when our towns and cities flourish.
But what happens when something goes wrong?
Conflict, disruption and environmental changes can leave us vulnerable, but we're never entirely powerless. This forms the challenge of CLUE 05 edition: to explore how light can help to prevent challenging situations and crisis or manage emergencies when they occur. In testing circumstances, how can we unlock the extrordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world?
During an incident or emergency, it's understandable that confusion, disorientation and even panic are likely responses. Thats' why, in this edition, organiser are asking young students and professionals to imagine the ways in which lighting can make a difference - big or small.

How can light help the people affected by a crisis ? What role can it play in aiding emergency responders? And how can it help in the aftermath of an incident?
This time the competition is themed: Light and Disruption, and is about exploring the role of light in emergencies.
