IDA’s Annual General Meeting and Conference is a time for dark sky advocates to get invigorated about the cause, as participants from around the globe unite to discuss the latest developments in light pollution research and mitigation. The AGM frequently includes engaging talks, workshops, breakout sessions, a public meeting of the IDA board of directors and the presentation of IDA’s annual awards.
Recent meetings have included talks on night sky preservation efforts from around the world, ordinances, human health, night sky brightness measurement, developments in lighting technology, legal aspects of light pollution, outdoor lighting workshops and more.
