International Noise Awareness Day
Noise is all around us and more and more people are affected by the constant noise in the home, at work, at school and in the streets. The annual International Noise Awareness Day brings the noise and the problems associated with it into focus.
“It is time to address the threat that noise poses to hearing, health, learning and behavior,” says Amy Boyle, Director of the Noise Center of the League for the Hard of Hearing.
The International Noise Awareness Day this year will be held on Wednesday, 26th of April.
Many events are planned throughout the day. In one of them the public will be asked to observe the Quiet Diet. The Quiet Diet, one minute of quiet from 2:15 to 2:16 regardless of your location, will tie the events together across the globe.
Once again, the League for the Hard of Haring will sponsor this annual event.
