Within the framework of the Air Energy Climate Plan, the Aix Marseille Provence Metropolitan Area, in partnership with Cerema, offered a webinar on 19 November 2020 on the challenges of appropriate lighting for a respected biodiversity.
Many local authorities are now developing programmes to reduce and adapt their lighting mainly for energy-saving reasons. However, these actions also have an impact on biodiversity (fauna and flora) but also on human health.
The development of a black, dark, obscure screen, i.e. the identification of the ecological network characterised by a certain darkness and borrowed by nocturnal species, is therefore important as well as green and blue screens. This webinar addressed the following issues to better understand and take into account :
- The issues surrounding artificial lighting
- Light pollution on a metropolitan scale - the challenges for the territory
- The black weft: a tool for rational lighting - experience feedback
- Night-time ecological continuities in planning documents
- Technical solutions to reduce the impact of lighting on biodiversity
Do not hesitate to read the presentation and the report of the exchanges and questions.
