It is now well accepted that light can have a profound effect on health and well-being via its impact on the human circadian system. Light is the major synchronizer of circadian rhythms to the local position on Earth. Exposure to little light during the day or too much light at night can disrupt the circadian system and circadian disruption has been linked to a series of maladies. With the advent of solid-state lighting, the possibilities seem endless. But, what is healthy lighting? How can one effectively and comfortably implement it? Do we need to use “blue-enriched” light to achieve our goals? This workshop will answer these questions by providing tips on how to develop lighting solutions that are effective for health and well-being, while still delivering good lighting for visibility and comfort.

This meeting is being jointly hosted by the BSA K-12 Educational Design Community and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).
