lt is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Light in the City event in Tartu on 7 9 2014!

Tartu is a unique university town with long-standing traditions. Ever since the establishment of the University of Tartu in 1632, Tartu has been the centre for academics, scientists, and students from all over the world.

As a science centre Tartu inevitably attracts a lot of talent and innovation from Estonia and abroad. lt is a city of good thoughts! lt has enabled Tartu to become a hotbed of technology sector in Estonia and the Baltic States. Several outstanding bio-, material- and information technology companies have been started in Tartu.

The basis of the development of Tartu City is the principle of sustainable development, requiring all the activities to be planned in such a way that they do not harm the quality of life of future generations. The City of Tartu has paid much attention to environmental issues in recent years. It has actively developed areas which are related to energy efficiency and improvement of living environment.

We invite the participants of the event to reflect, discuss and debate on urban lighting trends and issues through presentations, meetings, workshops and networking sessions. We are happy to present to you what we have achieved, and to share our ideas and experiences with you.

Welcome to Tartu!
