2020 WIL Activities

20 May 2020 // Activities

A note


It’s a difficult time for planning and most of the WIL plans for 2020 have been put on hold but along with our sponsor formalighting, we will do our best to keep the network moving.
Some of the network have put forward things/ideas they would like to develop. Here is a list. If anyone is interested, please get in touch.

  • Creating a green policy that we can work on together.
  • Finding a way to share information about internships internationally.
  • Creating a moodboard of light from all the countries represented.
  • Translating posts into your language.
  • Linking up to charity projects.

We really hope that everyone is safe and that the world is able to return to normal soon.

Note: Light + Building 2020 has been cancelled.

Both the WIL team and our sponsor and host formalighting are really disappointed not to be able to meet with those of you who would have been attending and will share new plans soon. Instead, we plan a new social media challenge for International Women’s Day 2020. Please share the plans and join in on the day.
