Find acoustic oases to protect your hearing!

Horns, construction sites, sirens, and motorcycles whizzing by... how noisy are our cities?


According to World Health Organization, over 1 billion young people are at risk of avoidable hearing loss, due to prolonged and excessive exposure to loud music and noise.


Noise pollution is among the causes and it represents a serious environmental threat to our health.


Download the App Listen Responsibly and measure the noise level around you to create a shared map of the acoustic ecology.
