Liter of Light, a Filipino-born global grassroots solar lighting movement, will premiere a pioneering environmental film “Theory of Light” at Expo2020 in Dubai, during the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Climate Week. The film was presented to over 100 dignitaries and guests at the Opportunity Forum on March 27th, 2022 and showcased the impact of a Philippine innovation in building resilient communities. 

Theory of Light put a spotlight on the need to address social inequalities, climate change and the need for a more urgent and united action to protect countries experiencing adverse effects of the environment. The film features Liter of Light’s effort to take action on the increasing impact of climate change and in inspiring new generations of innovators from the Global South to come up with ideas that will change the world.

This project is supported by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The film includes interviews from Niclas Svenningsen, manager, UN Global Climate Action, and is produced and distributed by TBA Studios, the two-time Philippine representative to the Academy Awards.

Liter of Light has been a key collaborating partner of UNESCO’s International Day of Light and the International Year of Light since 2015, and has carried out a wide range of award-winning actions over many years to raise awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
