Traffic noise on the agenda

October 1st, the Silent City project, in collaboration with Danish Sound Network and FORCE Technology, hosted a very well visited People’s Festival on traffic noise with participation from politicians, experts, companies and most importantly a lot of completely regular people – concerned with the problems with traffic noise. The event was a huge success, not in the least due to very strong commitments from the politicians to form an alliance across party boundaries to put noise pollution higher on the agenda on Christiansborg.
