Celebrating World Ozone Day!

14 Sep Celebrating World Ozone Day!

Wednesday, September 16 is World Ozone Day.  The theme for the World Ozone Day 2020, to be marked on 16 September, is:  35 Years of Ozone Layer Protection.

The theme for this year celebrates 35 years of the Vienna Convention and 35 years of global ozone layer protection. Life on Earth would not be possible without sunlight. But the energy emanating from the sun would be too much for life on Earth to thrive were it not for the ozone layer. This stratospheric layer shields Earth from most of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. Sunlight makes life possible, but the ozone layer makes life as we know it possible.

On 19 December 1994, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 16 September the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, commemorating the date, in 1987, on which the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer was signed.
