The Right to Quiet Society was founded in 1982. It is a registered charitable organization. Our objectives are:
• To promote awareness of the increasing problem of noise pollution and the dangers of noise to our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being;
• To work for noise abatement through regulation and enforcement, and by encouraging responsible behaviour;
• To foster recognition of the right to quiet as a basic human right.
We do not seek to create an absolutely silent world. However, we want to see a world where quiet is a normal and readily-available part of life.
We want our homes to be havens from unwanted noise, and we ask that the soundscape of public spaces be respected.
We insist on our right to listen, or not to listen, to music and other audio according to our own tastes and moods, without having other people's choices forced on us.
We want to be able to attend movies, listen to speeches, and go skating or dancing without being deafened by unreasonably loud amplification.
We would like to see certain times and places set aside as "acoustic reserves" so that everyone has a chance to experience the healing power of silence.
Please get involved and work with us.
