What is the link between the shocking rise in myopia, obesity, depression. and learning difficulties in children and young people? And the collapse in vital pollinating insect populations in towns and cities around the world?
That's right - it's the light!
We spend an average of 90% of our time indoors. That’s nine whole years of a 10 year old’s life. A growing body of research points to the devastating impact of life under artificial light on physical and mental health, not only in the short term but for generations to come. And yet, as we increasingly work, study and shop from home, the obvious solution - to ‘switch off’ - is simply not an option.
A brilliant new generation of simple, sustainable, healthy ’human-centred’ lighting solutions are finally within reach of our cash-strapped schools, hospitals - and kitchen tables.
And yet there is little or no accessible, science-led, up to date information about what is happening in the brain - and small changes that make the world of difference.
It is high time we gave this remarkable generation of young people and those who care for them the tools to make better choices about light, from sunlight to screen time.
Luna (TM) is the central character in an ongoing series of explainer videos, interviews with scientists and educational resources designed to do just that. This foundation series is sponsored by three global manufacturers: Fagerhult, Seoul Semiconductors and Signify.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed putting it together. Please add your name and contact details to the link below and we'll keep you posted!
