International Ozone Day…

Since 1995, on 16 September each year, the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is celebrated. This date has been designated by the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution 49/114, to commemorate the signing of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.

This commemoration around the world offers an opportunity to focus attention and action at the global, regional and national levels on the protection of the ozone layer. All Member States are invited to devote this special day to promotion, at the national level, of concrete activities in accordance with the objectives and goals of the Montreal Protocol and its Amendment.

Life on earth has been safeguarded for thousands of years because of a life protecting layer in the atmosphere. This layer composed of ozone acts as a shield to protect the earth against harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The Ozone layer is unique to our planet. If the ozone layer weakens or disappears, the UV radiation would sterilize the surface of the globe, annihilating most terrestrial life. Ozone depleting man made chemicals emitted into the atmosphere are responsible for the depletion of ozone.

just like god the layer is invisible and protect us from harm rays so By our individual small approaches, we can make a difference in maintaining the ozone layer. This is a golden chance to analyse the present situation and by concentrating and focusing attention toward this phenomenon, we should move ahead to do something substantial at the regional, global and national levels to protect the ozone layer.
