Safety

How light can con­tribute

The topic of safety in cities is a com­plex one and is often the sub­ject of pas­sion­ate debate. Need­less to say, safety is essen­tial for well-being. On the other hand, a feel­ing of safety and objec­tive danger in public spaces are often miles apart. More light­ing can increase the feel­ing of safety but it does not auto­mat­i­cally have an effect on actual safety. Holis­tic design approaches are required for urban spaces here, which also include light­ing plan­ning. For a dynamic city, healthy social rela­tions and a strong iden­ti­fi­ca­tion factor is the best means of ensur­ing the safety of cit­i­zens.
