As Perth aims to deliver its five year City of Light Action Plan it was a pleasure to take the trip down to London to join Leni on the NightSeeing walking event. A fantastic way to meet and speak to people from a variety of backgrounds all with a shared interest in Light and its role in benefiting our cities in social inclusion, economic impact and safety. Leni’s energy and passion and humour shines through and her experience in the field make this event entertaining as well as highly informative. Approaches to the design and delivery of lighting involving the community to drive pride and a sense of ownership while not unique as a means in consultation were very interesting as with the tour itself in appreciating all aspects of light and how they work together or in a lot of respects don’t. If you have the opportunity to host this event or go to it in the future I would highly recommend.

We hosted Leni's NightSeeing and a special lecture at reSITE 2017 Prague about the In/visible City. Check where a video of her lecture will be shared during fall. She brought a truly eye-opening experience and attracted not only intrigued visitors, but also many editors, from Czech and international media. Urban lighting overlaps with a lot of city planning and city making aspects, from historical monuments preservation to security and 24-hr city concept. Urban lighting design can make a tangible change quite quickly and this is what makes it very attractive. Thank you Leni for this very valuable cooperation.

Nightseeing is a fun way for people to learn something new about everyday nighttime environments. It is also about developing a new vocabulary for something we are intimately familiar with, yet incapable of expressing. Light and shadow, color, movement and behaviour. Beyong lighting, Nighttime Design unlocks crucial conversations about public space, urban planning, policy, community, and more. Leni's insight draws from years of experience and ranges from artistic intuition to participatory planning to hi-tech smart city applications. I've been on several nighttseeing expeditions and I thoroughly recommend it!

It was great to have Leni in Prague! Leni's walk format was super refreshing and attractive for our reSITE conference guests. And in a dialogue with local public space expert Pavla Melkova from the Prague Institute of Planning and Development we've succeeded to discuss also many site-specific issues. This way I learned not only about night lighting, public space and safety, but also about various property ownership issues and legislation challenges. We hope for a long-term cooperation!

Leni came to Mona Vale in Sydney and opened my eyes to the way a town centre needs to be considered at night. Our walk showed how we have considered the daylight experience and largely ignored the night time experience from a lighting perspective. Much of our town centre lighting is incorrectly proportioned to make our civic centre and surrounding commercial activities inviting in the evening.
