How does the urban sound environment influence how we use and understand cities? Noise can negatively impact our mental and physical health, but can sound also promote our sense of well-being? And what efforts have been done to shape and manage the future of urban sound?

Join the Initiative on Cities as we invite Erica Walker, founder of Noise and the City and the Community Noise Lab at Boston University, and Daniel Steele and Edda Bild, from Montreal’s Sounds in the City, to discuss their research and projects focused on urban sound.

Speakers: Erica Walker, Boston University; Edda Bild, University of Amsterdam; Daniel Steele, McGill University Make sure to sign up for our bonus event - a soundwalk with Daniel Steele (register at
