Lunchtime Lecture: Erica Walker, Noise and the City

Do you have the right to peace and quiet? To piano-filled or piano-free enjoyment? Noises like car horns, leaf blowers, crying babies, parties, protestors, and building construction fill urban life, but they could be affecting our health.

Join Healthy Places GSD for a lunchtime lecture with Erica Walker, a researcher on community noise. Walker investigates with participatory citizen science tools such as her NoiseScore app, bringing equity and justice to soundscapes. Her work has been featured in The Atlantic, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.

Lunch will be catered by Fresh Food Generation, a farm-to-plate food truck started by MIT DUSP alumna Cassandria Campbell to bring Caribbean-inspired healthy food to underserved neighborhoods.
