OzonAction Special Webinar: End of Year Reflections on the Montreal Protocol at 25 Years
As a year draws to an end it is customary to reflect upon what has been accomplished during the past 12 months. As we head towards the end of 2012 we have the opportunity to reflect upon the accomplishments of the Montreal Protocol from the perspective of this landmark year.
2012 is the 25th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol - its silver jubilee. The end of this milestone year is a fitting occasion for a special end of year webinar to celebrate the successes of the Montreal Protocol. OzonAction is pleased to invite individuals who have been dedicated over the past quarter century to protecting the ozone layer. The webinar will provide a platform for these ‘ozone luminaries’ to share their experiences of and insights into the Montreal Protocol and ozone protection, engaging with webinar participants in an informal atmosphere.
