About this webinar

Outdoor lighting serves multiple objectives including the safety of people at night, but lighting also has unintended impacts collectively described as light pollution. In this course, participants will learn about the impacts of lighting (who, what, and how) and approaches to minimizing it in the design process. Emphasis will be on asking the right questions of clients and applying appropriate design tools for appropriate lighting.

Upon completion, you'll be able to:

  1. Describe the different aspects of light pollution to clients and the general public.
  2. Distinguish the characteristics of outdoor safety lighting that impact light pollution.
  3. Analyze outdoor lighting site attributes and use patterns to determine lighting needs for optimal health and primary light pollution concerns.
  4. Interpret lighting design schematics and details that enhance the wellbeing of end users and as they impact light pollution outcomes.
