Dark Skies CPD

Regaining Dark Skies

The Oxford English Dictionary defines dark skies as "places where the night sky is relatively free from interference caused by artificial light." With our FREE CIBSE Approved CPD, we aim to provide an introduction to the true essence of Dark Sky and the various initiatives surrounding it. Our learning outcomes will encompass the historical background of Dark Sky, the factors contributing to light pollution, and the necessary approach to create an environment that embraces Dark Sky in the most optimal ways.
