Today, March 3rd is the World Health Organisation’s International Ear Care Day. This year the WHO has selected the theme ‘Make Listening Safe’ which is precisely the aim of DeafHear’s Keep the Sound campaign.

 

Yesterday the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Cllr. Christy Burke officially launched the Keep the Sound camapign in the Mansion House in Dublin, with the assistance of a group of students from Coláiste Iosagáin, Booterstown, Dublin. Over the next few years the Keep the Sound campaign will visit schools, colleges and other places where young people meet, to highlight the dangers of listening to music at high sound levels and to encourage safer listening habits.

Based on international figures, DeafHear estimates that 300,000 young Irish people aged 16-35 are regularly placing their hearing at risk.
