27TH WORLD OZONE DAY
COMPETITION FOR SCHOOL STUDENTS
CONTEXT
The world community realizing the adverse effects including skin cancer, eye cataracts, weakening of immune system and damaging crops and natural eco-systems of depletion of Ozone Layer, signed an international treaty, the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer on 16th September, 1987, for phase out of production and consumption of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODSs), responsible for depletion of ozone layer. Since 1987, the Montreal Protocol has successfully phased-out production and consumption of several ODSs and resulted in reducing abundance of ODSs in the stratosphere and put the Ozone Layer on the path of recovery.

The General Assembly of the United Nations vide resolution, 49/114, of December 1994, designated 16 September as the World Ozone Day. Since then, the day has been celebrated in ways that have served to promote national and global efforts to protect the ozone layer.
