INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE OZONE LAYER - 16 September
 

'Protecting our atmosphere for generations to come’ is this year’s slogan for the celebration of the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer on 16 September. By a UN decision adopted on 19 December 1994 and aimed at promoting the importance of implementation of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, 16 September was proclaimed as the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. From that day this event is marked in such a way that national and global efforts on ozone layer protection are promoted.

This year's theme ‘Protecting our atmosphere for generations to come’ tells us that the ozone layer is not just our own and that no one after us will need it and emphasises our role (obligation), not only as individuals but also as a community as a whole, we have to do something today in order to preserve the ozone layer for those who will come after us.
