"Wheesht Ulster" is an interactive project highlighting the impact of everyday noise in our environment. As well as learning some of the basic principles of noise and growing research on how noisy environments affect our health and wellbeing, participants will be encouraged to explore and reconnect with spaces and places throughout NI to identify the best quiet areas that communities and society can benefit from. Such places can unexpectedly be found just a short distance from some of the noisiest places within our towns and cities. Using the Hush Cities app (a free citizen science mobile app) participants will be taking part in a European wide project with the potential of orientating plans and policies for healthier living.
Join Lindsay Shaw on a journey with a difference through the streets of Belfast.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic we have a few important requests for you, to ensure that the event is safe for everyone attending or facilitating.
If you or anyone in your household are suffering from a temperature, a persistent cough, or a loss of taste or smell - DO NOT ATTEND (unless you have prior permission from us after providing a negative COVID-19 test result). It is your responsibility to let the organiser know that you no longer attend the event so that a refund can be facilitated and the space made available for another.
Please arrive at the stipulated meeting point 15minutes before the event begins. It is a small group, but please be patient and maintain a 2 metre distance from other people/groups when you arrive.
When you arrive onsite, please:
- Use the hand sanitiser provided by the instructor or guide,

We look forward to seeing you there.
