1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us for this informative talk and learn more about the devastating effects of artificial light at night, and how we can act now to help.
Artificial Light at Night was first identified as a problem by astronomers, but its consequences reach far wider. It is now widely recognised that artificial light at night, especially bright white light, can have profoundly negative effects on human health, and the effects on wildlife have been devastating, leading directly to the death of millions of birds each year. It is also the major driver of the insect apocalypse – studies suggest that 40% of insects will be extinct within the next few decades.
Solutions are readily available, are simple to implement, will have a net saving (of money, energy use and carbon emissions), and will not compromise security or our ability to safely work, travel and play at night.
We need to act now before it is too late.
Venue – Coombe Bissett Village Hall, Shutts Lane, Coombe Bissett, SP5 4LU
