3.3 Come and listen to how we can fight noise - the hidden killer in our cities

Noise from cars, trains, trams and airplanes affects the health of more than 120 million European citizens, and causes more than 16 000 premature deaths in the EU every year. We urgently need to take action to reduce this impact.

Join this session to discover why noise is a hidden killer, how it affects your health, and how we can measure and monitor it. But most importantly listen to a virtual simulation of noise in the city, and experience yourself the difference if we actively take measures to reduce it.
