The motto of the 17th festival is CREATING TOMORROW, and it was precisely this preoccupation with tomorrow that motivated the Climate Pledge to be a presenting partner. Moreover, art in combination with light is particularly well suited to present important messages emotionally and with an appropriate reach to a worldwide audience. With the impressive light art productions and 3D video mappings on the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin TV Tower and the Hotel de Rome, the topic gets the necessary visibility. All three shows – “Man,” Nature” and “Technology” – outlined in their artistic way the ways to more sustainability and a reduction of carbon emission. They were a blueprint for the preservation of our planet and affirmed that we must take up the challenge of our century.

The mapping “Mensch” on the Brandenburg Gate said it all: The future is in our hands. However, successful change on such a large scale and within a short period of time can only be achieved through a solidarity-based and consensual effort by business and society. The task is great, but together it can be mastered.
