Abstract
Sustainability, resilience and safety are features of a society that are more affected by sound environments than is generally acknowledged, even if other environmental threats may appear more prominent. But when noise levels reach the limits of sustainability in society, it´s resilience to destructive processes of many kinds will be challenged.

In an interdisciplinary symposium in 2014 arranged by The Sound Environment Center in collaboration with the Centre of Societal Resilience at Lund university, a number of researchers came together to discuss aspects of safety, security and sustainability in society with regard to the sound environment.
