Saving The Dark is a documentary movie about the impact of light pollution on astronomy, human health, wildlife and our environment.

Light pollution hides the Milky Way from third of the world's population. Millions of children will never see a sky full of stars. The night skies remind us of our place in the Universe. It gives us identity, makes us feel a connection. Think of all the great minds that gazed up at the night sky and were inspired by it. We've lost the potential for thousands of great minds. Billions of dollars are spent in wasteful lighting. About 15 million tons of CO2 are emitted each year in order to power residential outdoor lighting in the US. About 35% of light is wasted. Thousands of sea turtles and millions of birds are killed each year due to light pollution and affects so many other nocturnal species. It is also harmful to our health and well being. 

The movie shows show the work of NGOs fighting to preserve dark night skies, explains, what people can do at home to fight light pollution and presents cities that have successfully handled this issue.

Film is presented in the frame of The Vianden deLIGHTed program, organized by Naturpark OUR and City of Vianden and will be followed by Q&A session.
