All-Party Parliamentary Group of MPs for Dark Skies
The Commission for Dark Skies has been working closely with CPRE the Countryside Charity, the International Dark-Sky Association, the Institution of Lighting Professionals, U.K. National Parks and AONBs and other interested organisations to support the All-Party Parliamentary Group of MPs for Dark Skies. This APPG was formed in 2019 under the joint chairmanship of Andrew Griffith MP and Lord Rees the Astronomer Royal.
Their first policy paper, urging the Government to adopt ten policies which will go a long way to solving the problems caused by light pollution, was launched on 9th December 2020. It can be viewed and downloaded at: APPG Policy Plan
After more than three decades of campaigning against light pollution, which not only steals our stars but has significant negative impacts on biodiversity, health, climate change, this is the best chance for a long time to achieve real legislation.
