R4R Resources for Ozone Day

R4R Resources for Ozone Day:  

September 16, 2014 

The United Nations International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is celebrated each year around the world on September 16. The theme for this year's event is "Ozone Layer Protection: The Mission Goes On" and it marks the 27th anniversary of Canada's signing of the Montreal Protocol- an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer and eliminate the use of ozone depleting substances. This landmark treaty has been hailed as a prime example of successful global cooperation to protect our environment.

On this special day, primary and secondary school educators throughout the world are encouraged to organize classroom activities that focus on topics related to the ozone layer, climate change and ozone depletion.

Resources 4 Rethinking (r4r.ca) encourages students and teachers to participate in International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. Check out the curriculum-linked Ozone Day activities that will connect you to some excellent resources to support these efforts.
