The Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology (AFAE) was formed in 1998 by people interested in the awareness, experience, and study of sound and soundscapes. We are an affiliate of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE), the umbrella organisation linking like minded groups from around the world.

The AFAE is a not-for-profit, which is home to a collection of people across Australia who listen and who have a professional or personal interest in fields such as: acoustics, audiology, architecture, digital design, education, health, landscape, phenomenology, sound art, sound culture and sound design.

The organisation brings together people who aim to promote a culture of listening to raise awareness generally of issues around listening, sound and sonic environment; and to encourage discussion, debate, education, practical activities and research.
