GAW | Happy World Ozone Day! Ozone for Life: 35 years of ozone layer protection

Happy World Ozone Day!

This year, the world marks the 35th anniversary of the world’s most successful environmental agreement which has enabled the gradual recovery of the Earth’s protective ozone layer.

World Ozone Day, held on September 16, celebrates this achievement. It shows that collective action, guided by science, is the only way to solve major global crises. The slogan of the day is ‘Ozone for life’ – the ozone layer is crucial for life on Earth and needs protecting for future generations.
