The objective of World Ozone Day is to make people aware about the ozone layer that protects the earth from the harmful ultra violet rays of the Sun among the people all over the world.
World Ozone Day 2020 (World Ozone Day 2020): Every year World Ozone Day is celebrated on 16 September. Its purpose is to make people aware about the ozone layer protecting the earth from the harmful ultra violet rays of the Sun among people all over the world.
The deterioration of the ozone layer promotes climate change. Earth’s temperature is constantly increasing due to climate change. Many kinds of diseases are spreading due to climate change and increasing temperature. Awareness campaign is being carried out around the world in view of this serious crisis.
This day is celebrated every year on 16 September all over the world. World Ozone Day is celebrated every year to highlight the importance of the ozone layer above the earth and its role in the environment. Every year, people are made aware of its importance by preparing a different theme to protect the ozone layer.
Purpose and importance of this day.

Ozone layer at a glance
The ozone layer was discovered in 1913 by French physicists Fabri Charles and Henri Busson. The ozone layer is a layer of gas that protects the Earth from the sun’s harmful rays. This layer of gas acts as a good filter (filtered and purified) for ultraviolet rays emanating from the sun. This layer helps in protecting the life of the organisms of this planet. It protects the health and ecosystem of humans by preventing harmful ultraviolet rays from reaching the earth.
Scientists of the British Antarctic Survey first discovered a large hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctic in 1985. Ozone is a light blue gas. The ozone layer has a higher concentration of ozone (O3) than other parts of the atmosphere. This layer is mainly found in the lower part of the stratosphere at a height of 20 to 30 km from the earth. The thickness of the layer varies according to the weather and geography.
What harm is caused by ultraviolet rays?
The ultraviolet ray is a ray coming from the sun to the earth in which energy is very high. This energy is slowly diluting the ozone layer. Increasing amount of ultraviolet rays reduces the body’s ability to fight diseases in addition to skin cancer, cataract. It also has an impact on biological diversity and many crops can be destroyed. This ray also affects small plants in the sea, which can reduce the amount of fish and other animals.
