What we do
Artificial light at night is associated with the sense of security, wealth and modernity. Hence, light pollution is widely spreading after the onset of darkness. The increasing brightness of the nightscapes comes with considerable costs for the society, nature and human well-being.
STARS4ALL will create a platform for Light Pollution Initiatives. The platform will be self-sustainable and offering an integrated crowdfunding tool to fund the initiatives and actions. STARS4ALL supports citizens engagement and empowerment to initiate changes in consumer consumption, community awareness and actions against light pollution and associated energy waste. STARS4ALL will provide innovations in data acquisition from sensors deployed by citizens and in games with a purpose.
Our social impact
Light pollution is an issue that might be solvable within our lifetime. Light-pollution and its consequences are still not fully understood. When clear information is gathered, changes can happen. STARS4ALL aims to involve citizens in the research and to raise awareness about the multifaceted problems of light pollution. This awareness can not only save the habitat of nocturnal wildlife and create a nightly environment which supports human well-being, it will also help to save energy and reduce CO2 emission.
