Where can the lights be turned off?

Presentation by Marlies Hoek

Sustainability project.

What can the City of Amsterdam do to lighten the city less? That is a complex issue. A letter has been sent to the strategic policy advisors of the city districts. In France, for example, there are almost no lights on the highways anymore. In Belgium, public lighting is switched off between 03:00 and 05:00. In Amsterdam, consideration can also be given to switching off lighting when there are hardly any people on the street.
