IPWEA publishes news about LUCI Declaration
The LUCI Declaration has reached Australasia! The Declaration, a collective vision on the future of urban lighting, is featured in “Insite, a community news” by IPWEA, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia, and the SLSC (Street Lighting Smart Controls) Spotlight newsletter.
“Lighting strongly impacts important aspects of our lives: mobility, the feeling of safety, leisure and culture, social cohesion and diversity of our cities, amongst others! The recognition of light’s importance has led to the rise of urban lighting strategies, projects and events focused around light worldwide in the past 30+ years. But in the context of the climate mutation and energy crises, increased awareness of light pollution and the impacts of light on biodiversity and human health, we need to consider light as a precious public good, to be used with care in the right place, at the right time and at the right level.”
