World Ozone Day 2020: CREST Awards & Resources!

“This year, we celebrate 35 years of global ozone layer protection. Life on Earth would not be possible without sunlight. But the energy emanating from the sun would be too much for life on Earth to thrive were it not for the ozone layer.”

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is celebrated annually on September 16th. On this day primary and secondary school educators throughout the world are encouraged to offer classroom activities that focus on topics related to the ozone layer, climate change and ozone depletion.

Encourage your students to learn more and help nurture our planet with these fantastic resources & activities from CREST, Practical Action & the UN…
