Join the Little Sun Community
Do you want to build a renewable future, spread sustainability and inspire others to do the same? Then join us.
Little Sun works with companies, individuals, festivals, non-profits, and other organizations to shed light on the global issue of energy access. By becoming a part of the solar revolution you are helping us spread solar light and energy around the world!
Together with your community, employees, or clients, we can create a long term project and build a mutual sustainability campaign. Working hand in hand we can curate an experience or design a product that aligns with your focus. Let’s join forces to brainstorm unique ways to advocate for a better future for all!
Copenhagen Fashion Week
Little Sun was part of the exhibition ENLIGHTMENT at the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair Spring-Summer 2019, Little Sun from 8 to 10 August. The exhibition included works of art by Virgil Abloh, Naomi Campbell, Peter Saville, and Nick Knight and were inspired by the power, influence, and beauty of light to raise awareness for Little Sun’s mission of spreading solar energy around the globe.
In 2018, RIMOWA and Olafur Eliasson were working together to create a special collection of 46 nature-inspired luggage stickers, seizing shared ideas of sustainability, longevity, and concern for the environment. All proceeds are going to the Little Sun Foundation to help realise its mission: delivering solar energy to the most vulnerable communities worldwide.
In February 2017, Little Sun collaborated with Berlin’s famous film festival Berlinale to shine a spotlight on solar and to glimpse a life lived without access to electricity. Little Sun special edition Berlinale lamps could be purchased in the festival’s gift shop. For every Little Sun sold, Berlinale and Little Sun brought a Little Sun lamp to a child living without access to electricity in Ethiopia.
Little Sun has launched a sustainable living collaboration with IKEA to raise awareness for energy access for all. Together, IKEA and Little Sun want to create a series of sustainable off-grid tools for everyday life. Both beautiful and functional, they will be the perfect introduction to renewable energy and strengthen an independent, conscientious lifestyle.
Coinciding with Olafur Eliasson’s ‘Contact’ exhibition in Paris 2014, 1000 special limited edition Little Sun solar lamps were sold at the Foundation Louis Vuitton to celebrate the sharing of light.
From July to August 2018, Little Sun joined forces with Finnish designers Minna and Mari from Mifuko. During the #SustainableSummer campaign, every Little Sun Original sold in our web shop and every 20 euros spent in Mifuko’s online shop brought one solar-powered Little Sun Original to women of the Mifuko self-help group in Kenya. All in all, the campaign brought 600 lamps to Kenya.
We like working with companies and organizations that share similar values. Thus, we teamed up with Klean Kanteen – like Little Sun, a B Corp certified company – for the exclusive and limited-edition Klean Kanteen stainless-steel water bottle with Little Sun design. Every bottle bought made solar energy accessible to those who need it.
Add some sparkle to your event & shine a light on solar energy.

Donations & Long-term Cooperations
Together we can develop a donation project for you or your company. You tell us your budget and then we decide on a suitable off-grid project. Take a look at our ongoing projects below.
Solar Schools Program in Rwanda
The Solar Schools Program is an innovative package tailored to foster learning by providing pupils access to light and the opportunity to study for longer, in the comfort of modern light. In addition headmasters and teachers are provided with a powerful light and solar phone charger. It is expected that access to solar lights will have a positive impact on student’s performance as well as additional benefits. Find out more!
Community Health Workers in Zanzibar
Using a mobile health app, over 400 Community Health Volunteers can help pregnant women better plan for facility deliveries as well as pre and post-delivery care. As many of the Volunteers lack electricity in their homes, Little Sun has equipped over half of them with portable solar-powered phone chargers. The chargers provide the reliable energy needed to power their most important tool: the smartphone. Find out more!
Entrepreneurship in Senegal and Burkina Faso
Entrepreneur trainings, by our teams in Senegal and Burkina Faso, are the perfect opportunity for the future sales agents to spread the word about access to sustainable energy, improve the livelihoods in rural areas, whilst making an extra income. By selling Little Suns in remote areas, these entrepreneurs become solar ambassadors and make a remarkable impact on the local economy. Since 2014, our entrepreneurship network – mostly women – has helped us sell more than 40,000 solar products. Learn more about Senegal! Learn more about Burkina Faso!
