Soundwalks in Gothenburg
Rapport, 2016

The present report presents the results of a series of soundwalks carried out in the city of Gothenburg as part of the “Framtidsveckan 2015” activities. The study was developed inside the EC project SONORUS Urban Sound Planning in collaboration with the Environmental Office of the city of Gothenburg. The goal is to analyse the sound environment at different locations from the citizens’ point of view through a series of questions while at the same time, sound recordings and acoustical indicator data is obtained. Thereby, the citizens’ will have the opportunity to contribute to the present and future urban development, including urban sound planning, in the planning agenda. Moreover, the intention is to increase awareness among citizens in terms of noise exposure and sound quality, in addition to make them part of the study of their city. The soundwalks took place in October 2015.
