Next month, we will launch a new report on social inequalities in public lighting. The event will take place on 12 May 2016, 5-7pm, in the Shaw Library (Old Building) of the London School of Economics and Political Science (drinks and canapes will be provided).
Over the past few months CL has held a series of roundtable discussions to evaluate how social inequalities are mirrored in social housing lighting and how to best tackle this issue. For this, LSE academics were joined by invited experts from Transport for London, Homes and Communities Agency, Crisis, Metropolitan Police, Peabody, East Thames Group, Metropolitan Housing, BDP, Arup and more.
The roundtables saw diverse presentations from our expert participants and the discussions focused on developing an actionable agenda to help develop more equitable lighting in social housing – which is summarised in the report.
The launch event provides an opportunity to hear more from the Configuring Light team and will be the first chance to view and comment on the report. Confirmed keynote speakers include Professor Julia Black (Pro Director for Research at LSE) and Mark Major (Principal at Speirs+Major).
If you would like to join us on this occasion, please reserve your free place here (please note that registration closes on 9 May 2016).
