Nick has been appointed a Director for DarkSky UK.

Nick is Professor of Urban Design and Executive Director of Imagination, the design and architecture research lab at Lancaster University. He is the founding Director of the Dark Design Lab, exploring the impacts of nocturnal activity on humans and non-humans, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of urban places at night. Nick works across academia and multiple design professions to promote positive engagements with darkness, increase public understanding of key issues, and improve access to the dark sky for the benefit of future generations of humans and non-humans, and the planet we share. Nick’s focus in the DarkSky UK chapter is on developing a more sustainable relationship between the built environment and the night, as well as exploring ways to promote wider and inclusive participation with dark skies.
