We celebrate the Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer

September 16 is the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. On this day in 1987, 22 world countries gathered in Montreal, Canada, to sign the international agreement known as the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.

Several years later, in 1994, the United Nations proclaimed September 16 the Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, to emphasize the importance of implementing the Montreal Protocol. The Republic of Croatia is a member of the Montreal Protocol and the Croatian Ministry of Environmental Protection, Physical Planning and Construction is in charge of its implementation.

And on September 16 of this year, children from the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci learned almost everything there is to know about the ozone layer: its purpose, why it needs to be preserved and how to do it. Using chalk in various colors, they drew pictures of what they learned on the sidewalks and the road surface of the main street in the Village. In this way, we sent a message to both the pedestrians and the drivers who pass through our Children's Village.
