About this event
Now more than ever, it is essential to protect the night sky. The team behind the lighting design process including lighting designers, architects, landscape designers, suppliers and developers all play a role in helping this cause. In this webinar, we will share with the audience the ‘Dark Skies’ initiative, and illustrate by the testimonials of the astronomy center, scientists and lighting designers, the way that light pollution is affecting our environment and what we can do about this.
The session will also have time for audience involvement in Q&A.
