September 17, 2019

International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer was observed on Monday, September 16.

The theme of this year is "32 Years and Healing". The theme celebrates three decades of remarkable international cooperation to protect the ozone layer.

In his message on the occasion, UN Secretary General António Guterres said as we rightly focus our energies on tackling climate change, we must be careful not to neglect the ozone layer and stay alert to the threat posed by the illegal use of ozone-depleting gases.
