OZONACTION EDUCATION PACK
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have forged a unique partnership to provide primary school teachers with practical, hands-on and entertaining curricula material to educate their students about the protective role of the ozone layer and the causes and consequences of its depletion.
The OzonAction Education Pack contains an entire teaching and learning programme, based on basic knowledge, practical skills and participation, for students to learn about concrete and simple solutions to protect the ozone layer and safely enjoy the sun.
This Pack has been developed by UNEP’s Division of Technology, Industry and Economics OzonAction Programme as part of the organisation’s mandate as an Implementing Agency of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.
The Pack is part of its global communication strategy for promoting compliance with national obligations under that treaty, and it is linked to UNEP’s Tunza Children and Youth Programme and the International Decade for Education for Sustainable Development.

Below are links to the individual document files that make up the Education Pack. The files are saved in two formats:
- "Viewing": lower resolution and generally smaller sized PDF files suitable for viewing on screen.
- "Printing": high-resolution PDF files that are suitable for printing, including the guide marks for the printer. Some of the files are large and may require substantial time to download.
The Partners encourage organisations to translate and disseminate the Pack into regional and national languages. UNEP can provide advice and guidance in this respect, as well as the desktop publishing files. To understand how the Pack is being used, the Partners would appreciate learning about any interests to translate the Pack into other languages (please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
Item 1 below is the main guidance document for the teachers. Items 2-5 are related teaching aids that are referenced in the document. Item 6 is the packaging that is used to contain all of the materials.
