The day is recognized as the summer solstice, which is the longest day of daylight in the northern hemisphere and this encourages people to celebrate the various benefits of the sun. It is the day to learn more about the importance of daylighting. Daylighting is using skylights, windows, and some other architectural openings to the natural light interior spaces. It is useful in various ways, not only helps to reduce power consumption but may also have multiple health benefits.
