Wednesday, July 18th 2012 is World Listening Day. The purposes of World Listening Day are:
- to celebrate different ways we can focus on our soundscape (sonic environment);
- to raise awareness about the acoustic ecology movement, including ideas regarding how noise pollution can be reduced; and
- to introduce new educational initiatives and community events related to listening and acoustic ecology.
It is amazing what you can hear when you don't have the noise pollution created by man. We here at MAD play listening games all the time. Because we stop and listen and learn what is in our environment, our oldest Fun Tester can now identify some birds just by their call!!!
So take a minute today and listen! You might just have some fun!
