International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer – celebrating 35 years of ozone layer protection
Back in 1985, the world’s governments came together and collectively adopted the Vienna Convention for the protection of the Ozone Layer. 35 years on, we look at what the ozone layer is, why it’s so important, and what has been done to protect it over the years.
