World Ozone Day

14 Sep, 2018


World Ozone Day (WOD) is held annually on 16 September to mark the day when the Montreal Protocol was signed in 1987.

Celebrated since 1994, WOD was established by the United Nations General Assembly. The day is used to spread awareness of the depletion of the world’s ozone layer, and search for solutions to preserve it.

Special events, talks and seminars are held in Montreal to celebrate this day attended by specialists from all over the world.
