Street-Lighting Research and Local Authorities: Practices, Limitations and Possibilities Workshop

26th March 2013, 12:00 to 16:00, Room W007, Department of Geography, Dr. Robert Shaw, Teaching Fellow in Human Geography

The aim of the workshop is to provide a space for Durham researchers working in various disciplines to present their work to each other, and to local authority and PFI organisations from the North-East. This will help explore new research possibilities and projects, in the context of the needs and restrictions faced by current users and practitioners of street-lighting policy.

The workshop forms part of a Durham Energy Institute small research grant titled “Street-Lighting Policy in the North-East: Exploring the intersections between Energy policy and local governance”. It will begin with an overview of the findings of the research carried out as part of this project, which is exploring the variety of influences on street-lighting policy in north-east local authorities. This will be followed by exercises designed to get local authority participants and researchers discussing their needs, interests and future possible research directions

Lunch will be provided from 12 until 1.

There is no need to book attendance in advance. However, if you are interested in attending, then please let us know so that we have a sense of numbers for room bookings and catering.
