In the beginning...
The Australasian Dark Sky Alliance was established in 2019
In September 2018, one hundred delegates met at Siding Spring Observatory for Australia's first conference on light pollution.
Sparking the interest of local councils, tourism representatives, health practitioners, ecologists, astronomers and the lighting industry, eight delegates joined forces on a voluntary basis, to continue and strengthen the conversation around light pollution in Australasia.
As the name implies, the Australasian Dark Sky Alliance brings together groups actively working to create artificial light at night awareness. Our partnerships are integral to growing the grassroots movement and ensuring the science behind the message is sound.
If we haven't already reached out to you, drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you.
The Australasian Dark Sky Alliance is a non-profit, independent, non-partisan organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the impacts of light at night on our natural environment and the benefits of night conservation. We're focussed on reducing light pollution produced by homes, businesses and industry, in turn saving energy, money and the stars in our night sky.
