(USA) – Think tank on light PhoScope is launching Recreo de Noche in Puerto Rico, a model that will rapidly deploy solar lighting in community playgrounds.

Recreo de Noche is a replicable model for the procurement of a set of solar lighting products to community groups who will distribute and install them in collaboration with teams of volunteers. These teams will assist the process with public discussions and participatory workshops on light and lighting.

PhoScope partnered with Lighting In Action (LIA) and Concepteurs Lumière Sans Frontières (LSF) to implement a pilot project in San Juan with the Corporation del Proyecto ENLACE del Caño Martín Peña (ENLACE) and the local communities in Autumn 2018. The model will then be replicated in Puerto Rico.

The pilot project for Recreo de Noche was made possible through donations from Designers Lighting Forum of New York (DLFNY) and the New York City Section of the Illumination Engineering Society (IESNYC). PhoScope is now fundraising to launch more projects and to create a Volunteer Training Programme with free downloadable resources for Recreo de Noche’s volunteers and local communities.
