Noisedirect National Noise Service operates on a very simple formula: #WagingPeace.
We are passionate about protecting public health, reducing health inequalities, and helping to create peaceful, sustainable neighbourhoods and communities. Above all we are committed to safeguarding planet #Earth for future generations.
At Noisedirect we seek to dispel noise myths and promote #NoiseJustice.
As public health practitioners we believe in breaking down barriers to #NoiseJustice in the form of #NoiseAntonyms: embodied by the inability to live and work peacefully in a safe, sustainable environment, due to noise perceptions, policies, and enforcement; characterised by a host of political, cultural, social, geographical, financial and practical barriers. The climatic turmoil from human activities means that more than ever we have to think carefully about the destructive footprint of the Anthropocene epoch, where atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes, are now inexorably altered by humans.
Not only are we in danger of saturating the blue and green arteries of the #Earth, but the cacophony of noise from unbridled industrial and commercial processes, planes, trains, traffic, along with nuisance and neighbourhood noise from, individuals, household appliances and electrical devices is known to have harmful health effects for human and animal life. Hypertension, Hyperacusis, noise induced hearing loss and damage, ischemic heart disease, obesity, diabetes, adverse birth outcomes, and cognitive impairment in children; the list of health effects from noise, as reported by the World Health Organization, is almost endless. Yet, there seems to be no end to the constant clamour, which engulfs our daily lives.
We simply cannot continue as we are.
At Noisedirect, we believe that all of the inhabitants of planet #Earth; be they politicians, business, regulators, experts, adults, children, or world famous figures; need to work together in symbiotic partnership to preserve and conserve our universal home.
