The list of stars photographed by Bryan Adams in the Hear the World pose synonymous with conscious hearing, reads like a “Who’s Who” of the acting, music and fashion world. Featured alongside Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz are celebrities such as Diana Krall, Jean Paul Gaultier and Elizabeth Jagger. They all share the same goal: to raise awareness of the importance of good hearing and the consequences of hearing loss. The calendar, which is priced at $40, is available in limited edition. All proceeds from the calendar sales go to the Hear the World Foundation, which supports people with hearing loss all over the world.

A world in which everyone has the chance to experience good hearing – that is the vision of the non-profit Hear the World Foundation.

In particular, it promotes projects that support children with hearing loss, to enable them to develop at an appropriate rate for their age and to give access to school education. Since 2006, Hear the World has supported more than 60 projects across five continents and has already given countless people the chance of better hearing.
