Light: A session exploring a spectrum of views on various lighting issues
David Garlovsky speaking at the Friends of the Earth event:
Friday 24 February 2017, 1.30 – 5pm, London, SW9 0HP
Community input to street lighting decisions – There has been a growing trend for urban and rural areas to change roadway security lighting knowing that the lights being installed are affecting the urban tree canopy that provides a home for an astonishing number of small insects, birds, animals, lichens, ferns and fungi; also affecting human and wildlife circadian rhythms, road safety and view of our night sky. How can local communities be more involved in deciding how streetscapes including trees and lighting are planned, managed and maintained?”
