The importance of sound in today’s world: promoting best practices

During its 201st session, the Executive Board embraced the decision, at the initiative of Argentina, France, Japan and Lebanon, to recommend that the General Conference adopt a resolution on the importance of sound in today’s world to promote best practices.  

Following up on this decision, the Executive Board expressed hope that UNESCO might work towards an understanding of sound-related issues and encouraged Member States to foster mobilization of extrabudgetary contributions and technical guidance in order for the Secretariat to engage into related activities.

We encourage all interested parties to raise awareness on such an important matter and on the significance of introducing the public to a better understanding related to the quality of sound environments. We take this opportunity to invite not only Member States, but also all other interested stakeholders to contribute with financial and/or human resources towards the implementation of this recommendation and to contact us at eo.ci(at)unesco.org to that end.
