Noise in Europe
24 April 2017 09:00 - 18:00
European Commission (Charlemagne building) @ Rue de la Loi 170, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgien
European legislation addresses noise from transport, limiting noise from cars, railways, and airplanes. The Environmental Noise Directive requires an assessment of the noise citizens are exposed to. It calls upon national authorities to consider concrete actions to mitigate its negative health effects.At the conference, the World Health Organisation will present the latest scientific evidence of the health effects of noise. Representatives from Member States, public authorities, scientists as well as associations and organisations interested in environmental noise, will have the opportunity to discuss policy options to ensure we strike the right balance between the transport we all depend on, and the healthy lives we want.
