Kick-off of the 2019 prevention campaign for World Hearing Day on 3.3.19: German Tinnitus Foundation Charité supports #HIERGEHÖRT, a campaign of the Good Hearing Initiative
On the occasion of the international “World Day of Hearing” on March 3, 2019, the German Tinnitus Foundation Charité supports #HIERGEHÖRT. The campaign, initiated by the non-profit Berlin-based initiative Good Hearing, aims to make everyday noise in big cities visible in the truest sense of the word and to draw attention to the damaging influence of loudness on human hearing health. World Hearing Day also marks the launch of the Foundation’s prevention campaign this year: following the current recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), the focus in 2019 will be primarily on the development of educational and learning materials for children and adolescents from kindergarten to secondary level 1.
