Lilly Ryan started this petition to The Hon. Lily D'Ambrosio (Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister for Solar Homes) and

My name is Lilly Ryan, I am 11 years and I am passionate about reducing light pollution.

So why am I so passionate about this?

  • Did you know light pollution impacts Australian native animals?
  • Did you know light pollution impacts human health and has been linked to diseases such as cancer and sleep-related illnesses?
  • Did you know light pollution uses energy which created from fossils fuels, contributing to global warming?

Recently I have completed an Educational Research Project where I attempted to make contact with local councils, energy providers and companies that provide street and sporting light facilities. It was extremely difficult to find any meaningful information or focus on the issue.

I am asking for the federal and state governments along with the relevant environmental protection agencies in each of the states to make this more of a focus. There is a myriad of smart and energy-efficient technologies and ideas which can reduce light pollution and energy use.

We have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. Turn on our brains to turn off a light.

Please support this initiative.
