Freedom of expression, democracy and an open society are all necessary conditions in order to create and preserve academic freedom and enable a search for new knowledge. But in many places around the world, free speech is being restricted. So now it’s time to highlight and honour all those who dare to stand up for their convictions, for democracy, for knowledge and for freedom of speech, even when doing so is not easy or safe. They are the lights in a world that would descend into darkness without them.
During the Uppsala Light Festival, the Carolina Rediviva University Library’s facade is illuminated to highlight freedom of expression.
