“Sounding into World Listening Day” is an event that starts on the eve of the first World Listening Day and concludes on World Listening Day. This event is being organized by members of the World Listening Project. The purposes of World Listening Day are:
• to celebrate the practice of listening as it relates to the world around us, environmental awareness, and acoustic ecology;
• to raise awareness about issues related to the World Soundscape Project, World Listening Project, World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, and individual and group efforts to creatively explore phonography;
• and to design and implement educational initiatives which explore these concepts and practices.
