Highlight chemical/x-pdb Creating a quiet environment
Do you know someone who is doing something to create a healthy soundscape in your working environment, neighbourhood or municipality—implementing innovative solutions to noise problems or creating quiet green areas where the sounds of birds and bees can be enjoyed? If so, encourage them to apply for the European Soundscape Award 2012 which is open for submission from 25 April, the International Noise Awareness Day.

Figure object code Percentage of population exposed to noise within and outside mountain areas in Austria due to major roads and major railways with more than 6 mio vehicles or 60 000 train passages per year (excluding Vienna)
Difference on the percentage of people exposed to more than 55dB Lden and more than 50 dB Lnight inside and outside mountain areas in Austria. The calculations were done excluding the number of people exposed inside Viena and considering two different noise sources: noise from major roads (with more than 6 mio vehicles/year) and noise from major railways (with more than 60.000 train passages/year).

The left diagram shows a ranking from relatively less noise problems perceived down to cities with highly perceived noise problems (dataset 2). The right diagram shows in addition the reported noise data under the Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC (dataset 1). The colour of the city names indicates if the population moves rather towards the centres or to the edge or develops similarly in the centre and the edge (dataset 3)
