The International Day of Listening (IDL) is a one-day event that is sponsored by the International Listening Association. The International Day of Listening will be the third Thursday of September each year. This year’s International Day of Listening will be Thursday, September 21, 2017.
The day will promote a variety of events that engage people of all ages and all around the world in listening interactions—everything from one-on-one conversations with friends and family to business or community meetings to governments and their citizens talking about mutual concerns. The goal is to promote better listening in our conversations that will lead to better relationships and solutions to problems that will help make us more human.
We envision events all over the world focusing on the importance of listening and engaging people in listening events, and these events will have instruction and information about how to do this effectively. Check out International Day of Listening for more information on how to participate!
