World Ozone Day 2022: September 16 was designated by the United Nations General Assembly as World Ozone Day. The designation was made on December 19, 2000, in commemoration of the date, in 1987, when nations signed the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.
The ozone layer is a protective layer in the earth's atmosphere that absorbs most of the ultraviolet radiation reaching the earth from the sun.
It is at an altitude of about 10 km (6.2 miles) containing a high concentration of ozone.
The preservation of the Ozone layer is so important for us that a day is dedicated to creating awareness and educating people
World Ozone Day or International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is observed every year on September 16 to focus global action and attention on the preservation of the Ozone layer.
The Montreal Protocol started as a global agreement to protect the ozone layer.
The main objective of the Montreal Protocol was to take measures to control the total global production and consumption of substances that deplete the ozone layer
A united global effort to phase out ozone-depleting substances means that today, the hole in the ozone layer is healing, in turn protecting human health, economies, and ecosystems.
The theme for 2022 World Ozone Day is- 'Global Cooperation to Protect Life on Earth'
