Technology for good at RSA Engage

Mark was invited to speak at the RSA Engage event 'Technology for Good' in London to spark new conversations and discover ideas that are using technology as a powerful source for social change.

The Economy, Enterprise and Manufacturing Team at the RSA is exploring how technology is changing the way we live, work, and do business. Rather than being passively shaped by technology, the RSA believes that people can exercise power over tech to better serve us and society.

Mark's pitch 'Out of the dark', described how lighting has the ability to improve lives. Well lit spaces enable communities to feel safer, bring economic advancement, and give pride to the people living in the spaces. 

Light should not just be for the privileged few in wealthy areas; all communities should have access to good and beautiful lighting.
