For the design of the future Architectural Lighting Masterplan for the Historic Centre, Brașov residents are invited to walk around the Old Town, in a special context, without any light within the public spaces, and to provide their opinions to the specialists about how the lighting in Brașov Old Town should be.
During Earth Hour, on Saturday, March 25th 2023, from 20:30 to 21:30, together with more than 8,000 cities in 195 countries, for one hour, Brașov turns off the lights in the city. This way, citizens can experience individually or in groups, what a city is without electricity on the streets, and then, when the lights will be turned back on, after 21:30, they can analyse, by comparison, how satisfied they are with the street and architectural lighting.
During the walk, citizens are invited to keep the following in mind:
Everyone participating to this action will be able to win, by random choice, vouchers for selected locations in the Historic Centre.
The aim of this initiative is to gather ideas from Brașov residents, suggestions and opinions, but also criticisms, concerns and fears about the lighting in the Old Town. This action is intended to be an awareness-raising activity about lighting, its impact on the environment and the importance of architectural lighting for the enhancement of cultural and natural heritage in Brașov.
The initiative is part of the HUB-IN project run by ABMEE, Brașov Agency for Energy Management and Environmental Protection, funded by the European Union.
This action is supported by Fanzin Association, Brașov 2050 Association, Days and Nights guide, bizbrasov.ro, FwdBv.
