The 2020 World Ozone Day theme and tagline - OZONE FOR LIFE - 35 YEARS OF OZONE LAYER PROTECTION

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.

States are invited to devote the Day each year to promote, at the national level, activities in accordance with the objectives of the Montreal Protocol and its amendments.

Below are links to previous years' celebrations which provide information and materials that can be used to celebrate "Ozone Day" in your country, organisation or school.
