How to illuminate to avoid overexposure. Join the discussion between Dr. Eng. arch. Magdalena Zienowicz and Marcin Zebrowski of Urbcast.
According to the 2016 study "New World Atlas of Artificial Night Sky Brightness". 80% of the world's population lives under a sky with a glow, while in the United States and Europe 99% of the population cannot experience a "natural night." (Falchi F. et al., 2016)
The International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) explains:
"Worldwide, we spend at least $50 billion in energy costs every year to produce light that escapes into space." (International Dark-Sky Association, 2022).
Light pollution is widespread around the world. That is why all initiatives attempting to counter this phenomenon and protect the planet are so important.
A free webinar will be held on October 12 at 11 a.m. , during which we will try to answer the question of how to properly light a city after dusk in order to minimize the negative effects of light pollution, and at the same time balance lighting needs with dark sky protection.
The special guest of the event is Dr. Eng. arch. Magdalena Zienowicz, architect, graduate of the Wrocław University of Technology, assistant professor at the Institute of Landscape Architecture at the Wrocław University of Life Sciences, expert in research on illumination and light in landscape architecture.
She has authored numerous articles on lighting and illumination in urban space and is an experimenter and promoter of activities against light pollution.
The talk will be moderated by Marcin Wojciech Zebrowski, Business Development Coordinator, Urbanist, Podcaster, creator of the Urbcast channel.
