SILVA, Jonas Carvalho e; BUCHER-MALUSCHKE, Júlia Sursis Nobre Ferro  e  KAPPLER, Christoph. When leisure noise affects the health of a community. Mudanças [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.1, pp.49-53. ISSN 0104-3269.

The objective of this manuscript was to report the community actions of a group of residents, researchers and health professionals against the impacts of leisure noise (car sound walls) in the historic center of Porto Nacional-TO, Brazil. In this location, as a compensatory measure, a leisure area was implemented after the filling of the Luis Eduardo Magalhães Power Plant lake in 2001. The work relates the context of the emergence of this phenomenon and the emergence of social tensions among residents, shopkeepers, public managers and passers-by who gravitate around exposure to noise. From the mobilization actions in the community, a research was developed with the publications of the European Office of the World Health Organization that highlighted leisure noise as a public health problem and one of the forms of pollution that most affects people. Among the impacts, biological effects, sleep quality, well-being and medical conditions stand out. Despite the evidence found and the mitigation measures adopted by managers, noise still disturbs residents, suggesting a strong cultural factor in relation to this problem. It is concluded that the information in this report is promising for an area still under development in Brazil and that it implies interdisciplinary articulation around the effects of leisure noise on health.
