THIS YEAR, QUÉBEC IS JOINS IN !

Open to all, the Jour de la Nuit is a great opportunity to raise awareness about light pollution, the protection of nocturnal biodiversity and the beauty of the starry sky which has been taking place for many years in France.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE :

For the 16th edition, we want to see all of Quebec join the Jour de la Nuit thanks to your participation.



At home, turn off your outdoor lighting on October 11-12-13, 2024.

In France, entire towns and villages turn off their public lighting to rediscover the starry sky!

The Jour de la Nuit is also an opportunity to organize activities around the theme of the night on Saturday October 12, 2024 : artistic evenings dedicated to the night, nature and astronomy outings, photo exhibitions, readings tales by the fire... Past years are full of good ideas.

All events will be listed on the
jourdelanuit.fr website from July.
 

Together, let's celebrate the dark night and the starry sky!

HOW TO :

TURN OFF YOUR LIGHTS

 

TURN OFF YOUR RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING THE WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 11-12-13, 2024 to give way to the beauty of the night.

Do you own a business or work within an organization? Take part in the movement and only keep essential lights on .

AND FOR SOMETHING SUSTAINABLE...

Take advantage of the experience to do a little
analysis of your lighting. Perhaps you will identify a few fixtures that are useless or could be improved!

 

  • Change a luminaire whose light source is visible for a model which only shines downwards

  • Replace white sources with less powerful bulbs of a warmer shade

  • Install a dimmer or timer to control your outdoor lighting

  • Install a motion detector on security lighting
     

  • Remove, deactivate or permanently turn off lighting fixtures that are not essential
