The International Noise Awareness Day (INAD) aims at raising awareness of noise
on the welfare and health of people worldwide. It was founded in 1996 by the
Center of Hearing and Communication (CHC), and since then the day is
commemorated on a Wednesday in April each year.
The European Acoustics Association (EAA) participates in the celebration every
year by a series of events addressed to the whole society, with special
emphasis to young people who are among the most sensitive persons of our
society. These events have been organized so far typically by the EAA Member
Societies. For to 2017, the EAA decided to coordinate a wider campaign in order
to raise the interest of the European citizens towards noise and its effects on
the quality of life and health (the INAD 2017). EAA will collaborate with the
European Commission (in particular the DG-Environment) and the European
Environment Agency for promoting and coordinating specialized activities during
this year, among the EAA members Societies, and the European and national
authorities, the noise associations, the schools, museums, etc. in order that a
wider public will receive the most accurate and scientifically correct
information on noise effects.
The aim of this web-page is to collect and disseminate all the information on
the activities coordinated by EAA and organized either centrally by EAA or by
the member Societies and other related organizations.
