2017 IDA Annual General Meeting & Conference
Reclaiming the Night: Policy and Technology as Tools of Change
November 10-12, 2017 in Boston, USA
PROGRAM & LOCATION DETAILS: Coming Soon!
Why should you attend IDA’s 2017 Annual General Meeting & Conference?
The International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) is recognized by many as the leading authority on light pollution and is the largest nonprofit organization working to protect night skies and combat light pollution worldwide.
The IDA membership gathers annually to share new ideas and a mutual passion for dark skies. When engineers, designers, planners, architects, astronomers, and dark sky enthusiasts from around the world come together in their passion for the conservation of the natural night, it sparks connections that lead to real change. Members return home invigorated and inspired in their fight to end light pollution.
This year’s IDA Annual Meeting & Conference in the Boston area will take place following the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo and the ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX 2017). These events bring together the foremost thinkers on sustainability and green design. We are currently working on a program to help attract Greenbuild and ABX participants to attend IDA’s conference.
IDA’s Annual General Meeting & Conference will feature inspirational speakers, including experts in policy and lighting technology, who will discuss how to effectively use these as tools to reclaim the natural night environment. The conference will also showcase the future of night sky, wildlife, and neighbor-friendly lighting, and provide plenty of meaningful networking opportunities. While details are still under development, we expect to begin IDA’s activities the afternoon of Friday, November 10 and end by noon on Sunday, November 12.
This November, make plans to join hundreds of fellow IDA members and supporters who share your passion for protecting the night.
