The International Year of Sound is a global initiative to highlight the importance of sound and related sciences and technologies for all in society. The International Year of Sound will consist of coordinated activities on regional, national and international levels. These activities will aim to stimulate the understanding throughout the world of the important role that sound plays in all aspects of our society. As well, these activities will also encourage an understanding of the need for the control of noise in nature, in the built environment, and in the workplace.

April 28, 2021, marks the 26th Annual International Noise Awareness Day, founded by the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC) in New York, a leading nonprofit hearing healthcare organization since 1910. The goal of International Noise Awareness Day (INAD) is to raise awareness about the harmful effects of noise on hearing, health and the quality of life. We are honored to participate in The International Year of Sound with our shared goal of improving the understanding of the importance of sound in our lives and the deleterious effects of unwanted noise.
