How do we re-think lighting in a way that has a lower impact on the environment, while still fulfilling human needs?
How do we implement our good intentions in real life?
Gladsaxe municipality needed a lighting solution that affected a nearby bat colony as little as possible, while maintaining safety on the bicycle path running through a wooded area. Taking point of departure in this case, we discuss how lighting professionals should work to translate scientific research and technical knowledge into innovative site specific projects with the lowest possible environmental impact.
Speakers: Philip Jelvard and Rune Brandt Hermannsson, Light Bureau
