Learn some basic principles of noise and how noisy environments affect our health and well-being.

Participants will explore and reconnect with spaces and places and identify quiet areas from which communities and society can benefit. Such places can unexpectedly be found a short distance from some of the noisiest places in the city centre.

This event is part of the 2022 ESRC Festival of Social Science.

The Festival of Social Science is an annual celebration of research and knowledge about humans and society and celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022.

It’s an opportunity for anyone to explore topics relating to social science – from health and wellbeing to crime, equality, education and identity – through events run by researchers from UK universities.

Queen’s University Belfast and Ulster University have come together to produce an exciting and varied programme of events.

The festival is led and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

A full listing of events can be found on the Festival of Social Science website.
