World Listening Day is a project of the World Listening Project and the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology. The goal of World Listening Day is to celebrate the sounds of the world and raise awareness about audio ecology. 18 July was chosen in honor of the birthday of R. Murray Schafer, Canadian composer and educator whose seminal book The Tuning Of The World inspired the practice of audio ecology.

The SDG has contributed a collection of field recordings each year since 2010.
