Join SLL and CIBSE Home Counties North West region for a talk by Mary Rushton Beales on 5th June 2017.
An accidental spin-off of Mary's research into how natural and artificial light has affected human beings during evolution, she encountered reams of compelling research into ALAN'S effects on the ecosystem - as well as people.
Mary's lecture, commissioned by HCNW Region, summarises historical research and looks at current research, suggesting how we should act on it.
Start time 18:30
Organiser: Chris Jones
Food, Wine and Networking afterwards - plus CIBSE HCNW Prizes. CIBSE HCNW Region takes great care to avoid wasted food. So if you do book through Eventbrite and realise you can't make it, please consider others who are less fortunate - please cancel your Eventbrite ticket (My Tickets, This Event, Cancel Order).
CIBSE HCNW EVENTS are arranged entirely by Region volunteers.
PUSHKIN HOUSE is a Registered Charity (313111), it is non-political, it supports art and culture.
CIBSE is a Registered Charity (278104). It supports the delivery of art and science to the wider public. So as policy, HCNW Region seeks out charity venues, not only to maximise the number of events the Region can run within its limited CIBSE grant, but also to pursue CIBSE's charitable objects - by supporting other charities serving wider society.
FUNDING: This event is organised and fully-funded by CIBSE HCNW Region from its charitable grant, about £7 per HCNW Member, per year. The Region Committee does not organise social events.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Nearest tube, Holborn (Piccadilly and Central). Holborn is very well-connected for buses.
MOTORISTS: There is an underground car park under Bloomsbury Square.
ACCESS: If you require assistance with the stairs to the basement, please get in touch.
TERMS & CONDITIONS: Just to be clear, CIBSE HCNW and the premises reserve the right to refuse or withdraw admission and such a decision is final. Screens and audio are not cinema quality. Enjoyment of the event is subject to the limitations of the premises, speaker availability and our technical facilities executing what we intend them to do - technical performance is not guaranteed. CIBSE HCNW will not be liable for travel costs, parking charges, excess charges and fines, accommodation costs or the cost of any refreshments not provided at the event by CIBSE HCNW.
REGIONS: Regional events not only offer technical insight, but also provide a forum for novel, alternative and sometimes incisive or critical views from speakers, which do not necessarily represent the views of CIBSE (nor HCNW Region) nor the SLL.
TICKETS & ADMISSION: Proof of membership* of CIBSE, or another body considered by CIBSE HCNW to be a Chartered or Licensed Body (eg. the IET, Energy Institute, etc) may be requested before being granted admission at the CIBSE Member rate.
GENERAL PUBLIC: The public are welcome by paid ticket (when fees reach a threshold, the fund may be donated by HCNW Region to the CIBSE Benevolent Fund), or the Region's hardship concession, if eligible.
RECORDING - PRIOR PERMISSION REQUIRED: The organisers insist that any intention to record (audio or video) any part of the event is announced and that consent is obtained from all those attending.
FOOD & REFRESHMENTS: 50/50 vegetarian/non-vegetarian, no other criteria. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. To minimise waste, we under-order food, particularly for events starting later; so if you're hungry, arrive early. In London wine and soft drinks are served. Because of transport considerations, HCNW events outside London are alcohol-free.
REFUNDS: Requests for refunds must be submitted no later than 48 hours before the event starts. Members of the public joining up as a CIBSE Affiliate at or immediately after the event may be refunded on request.
BAGGAGE & POSSESSIONS: Please look after your possessions at all times. CIBSE HCNW and the venue cannot be held responsible for lost or missing items.
CANCELLATION: As with any event, this one is subject to cancellation. CIBSE HCNW will not be liable for travel costs, parking charges, excess charges and fines, accommodation costs or the cost of any refreshments not provided at the event by CIBSE HCNW. In the event of cancellation, CIBSE HCNW will refund deposits.
WAITLIST: Where an event is over-subscribed, CIBSE HCNW may add individual ticket requests to a Waitlist, or release tickets to individuals on the Waitlist in a priority order based upon previous booking and attendance patterns.
