July 18. World Listening Day #WorldListeningDay

World Listening Day is a reminder about the power of active listening. Take a moment to simply listen – to the sounds of nature, music, or each other. Highlight incredible sounds that help us appreciate the world around us or initiate conversations with your online community about how we can all enhance our listening skills.
