July 18 is World Listening Day.
This year’s theme for World Listening Day 2019 is “Listening With” created by Annea Lockwood. This year’s celebration challenges a state of “listening with an awareness that all around you are other life-forms simultaneously listening and sensing with you.”
World Listening Day is hosted by the World Listening Project.
Around the world contests and walks focus attention on improving listening skills and conserving critical soundscapes. July 18 was chosen because it is the birthday of the Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer, one of the founders of the Acoustic Ecology movement.
