You are invited to participate in the 2013 World Listening Day. World Listening Day has been happening annually on July 18, since 2010, and the fourth annual World Listening Day happens on Thursday, July 18. 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 Forum for Acoustic Ecology, World Listening Project, and individual and group efforts to creatively explore phonography;
and to design and implement educational initiatives which explore these concepts and practices.
