Use a key of "ambient", with a value of 20-30. You're probably better off using _minlight in worldspawn tho, which lightens shadows, and doesn't touch already lit area's.

_minlight sets the minimum light value; if _minlight is, say, 300, and you have an area with 400 lighting, it remains unaffected. If an area is lit 100, than _minlight makes it 300. You can use _color in the worldspawn to set the ambient color for _minlight or ambient. Some other keys at
