Green Talk – Lighting; Biodiversity & Health

22 March, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Presented by: Steve Tonkin FRAS (Dark Skies Adviser to the Cranborne Chase International Dark Sky Reserve.) Steve has been advocating responsible outdoor lighting for more than 30 years.

About the talk:
Badly implemented artificial light at night (ALAN) has been flagged up as an environmental pollutant for more than 40 years, yet little has been done to control it.
This socially-accepted pollutant has caused the disappearance of our starry skies, but this is merely the easily-visible tip of a whole iceberg of harm.
Every year, billions of birds and insects die as a direct consequence of ALAN, and we now know that it is implicated in several human health conditions. The remedies are known, are available, and are simple and cost-effective to implement..…..lets raise awareness and increase the will to implement these remedies.
