World Ozone Day is celebrated on 16 September every year. The purpose of celebrating the event is to spread awareness among people about the depletion of the ozone layer and seek possible solutions to protect it.
On this day, people from all over the world are expected to join the Montreal Protocol and attend lectures and seminars. Many commonly used chemicals have been found to have a great destructive effect on the ozone layer.

What is the Ozone layer?
The ozone layer (also known as the ozone shielding layer) in the Earth’s stratosphere is a delicate layer of gas that absorbs most of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. These rays can cause many skin diseases.
The ozone layer has high concentrations of ozone and it is a part of the atmosphere. Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms O3. Depending on where the ozone layer is, it can harm life or protect life on Earth.
Most of the ozone remains within the stratosphere, so it acts as a shield, protecting the Earth’s surface from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation.
If this shield were to weaken, we would all be more susceptible to impaired immune systems, cataracts, and skin cancer.
Why Protect the Ozone Layer?
Ozone is good at capturing a type of radiation called ultraviolet or ultraviolet light. Ozone depletion can cause excessive UV-B radiation. Excessive UV-B radiation can cause:
1. Skin cancers.
2. Eye cataracts.
3. Plant productivity decreases.
4. Decreased immunity to diseases.
5. Adverse effects on plastics.

The History Of World Ozone Day
The United Nations General Assembly has designated September 16 as the International Day for the Protection of the Ozone Layer.
This work was completed on December 19, 2000, to commemorate the date when countries signed the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in 1987. In 1994, the United Nations General Assembly declared 16 September the “International Day for the Protection of the Montreal Protocol on Protection of the Ozone Layer”, to commemorate the 1987 Montreal Protocol’s marking date on substances that may be attaining the ozone layer.
