Perceptions of urban safety after dark – A Study with a Female Perspective

Tim Hunt from ARUP will be presenting a collaborative research project aimed at improving night time experiences by listening to the voices of women and girls with host Buckford.

The presentation will highlight how lighting can positively impact our public spaces, reinforcing urban design principles, enhancing cultural experiences, social interaction, and importantly aiding placemaking at night time.

Even though 1 in 2 women do not feel safe walking home at night, the industry still persists in calling for lighting to meet Australian Standards which remain largely unchanged since last century.

ARUP has designed a methodology and set of guides and digital tools that can help diagnose unseen issues, plan for future capital works and engage, educate and empower stakeholders to include them in the design process.

A holistic approach to urban lighting could help create vibrant, prosperous, safe, and inclusive places for those who live, work and play in cities—at all hours.

Online webinar will be held on the 23rd September at 3pm.
