About Ozone Day

World Ozone Day is celebrated every year on 16th September since 1995. This Day marks the importance of Ozone layer and its role in the environment. The United Nations General Assembly has designated this Day to reflect the adoption of Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the Ozone layer.

There are numerous activities and programs organized to spread awareness about the global phenomenon of Ozone layer depletion. 

All member nations of the Montreal protocol take this opportunity to take some concrete steps at their national level in accordance with the aims and objectives of Montreal protocol.


The theme for the 2017 International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer to be marked on 16 September is: “Caring for all life under the sun.” 

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol. As part of the anniversary celebrations, the Ozone Secretariat will launch a communication campaign ahead of World Ozone Day to be marked on 16 September 2017.
