Abstract Blue Light

In September 2024,  the Australasian Dark Sky Alliance (ADSA), the Federal Department of Climate Change, Energy, Environment and Water (DCCEEW), the Network for Ecological Research on Artificial Light (NERAL), the Lighting Society (IES), the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) will host a 2 day Symposium on light pollution mitigation.

This face-to-face event will unite national experts, researchers, government, industry leaders, First Nations representatives and enthusiasts to address the urgent issue of light pollution. The event will aim to provide solutions tailored to the unique technical, marine and terrestrial environmental challenges faced in Australia.


The multidisciplinary collaboration and partnership of these hosts underscores the pivotal role of responsible lighting in minimising environmental impact, reflecting a commitment to enhancing environmental biodiversity and sustainability.
