Night Lights

Would you like to present?

Do you have a burning passion to share how you are reducing light pollution, research the impacts or creating dark sky places? Or maybe you have an idea on how to engage the community.

Whatever your field of expertise, we'd love to hear how you are reducing the impacts of Artificial Light at Night.

Applications close 30 June
