Symbol for Change
MIPAI and its partners are currently developing a photovoltaic torch named “Light Us” to propose to the United Nations as the symbol of MIPAI's engagement to promote sustainable development and preservation of our planet.
Inspired by references from the mythological History of civilizations that preceded us, the torch’s design is modern and designed like the world that it promotes. It will integrate the photovoltaic technology that uses solar energy to power. It will also include different types of equipment to enable the torch to change colors and interact with the public.

Light to the origins of life
The light has always represented life. It would even be at the origin. About three billion years ago, an innovation that would revolutionize life appeared. Some cells developed the ability to transform the energy from solar radiation into chemical energy, creating photosynthesis. The latter is essential to life on Earth: through photosynthesis, plant species provide us with oxygen, and produce cereals, fruits and vegetables that we and our animals consume.
Thanks to Thomas Edison, the electric bulb revolutionized everyday life.
Lighting is essential to our comfort and functioning of our societies. Until the 19th century, fire was the main source of light, used for torches and candles. Candles were mostly used for ease of operation and lower cost, which made them more accessible. On October 22, 1879, a brilliant engineer invented electric lighting. After countless trials, the American Thomas Edison managed to produce sustainable lighting by transmitting current through a carbon filament in a vacuum bulb. The new bulbs revolutionized the daily life of individuals. Today, electric lighting is one of the most common sources of light in the world.become a volunteer
