The Noise Abatement Society (NAS) is a dynamic UK charity with an international impact. It raises awareness of measured, considered and responsible use of sound. NAS helps to find practical solutions to relieve the physical and mental distress caused by noise, which profoundly affect all aspects of life.
The John Connell Awards, named after the Society's far-sighted founder, acknowledge the importance of the quality of sound in our lives, and champion vital advances in noise reduction for the public benefit. They recognise local authorities, organisations, manufacturers and individuals.
