About the Year of Sound

The Year of Sound is an international celebration of sound and how it enters our lives in so many ways.

About the Year of Sound

The International Year of Sound (IYS 2020) is a global initiative to highlight the importance of sound in all aspects of life on earth and will lead towards an understanding of sound-related issues at the national and international level.

Inspired by the achievements of La Semaine du Son (The Week of Sound), and following naturally as an important contribution to UNESCO Resolution 39 C/49 25 September 2017 on “The Importance of Sound in Today’s World: Promoting Best Practices”, the International Commission for Acoustics (ICA) is mobilizing its Member Societies and International Affiliates to promote best practices in sound during the year of 2020 to create an International Year of Sound (IYS 2020).
