"Love the ideas that this proposes, gives teachers a nice entry point into actionable science."
Reset Earth is a global campaign run by the UNEP Ozone Secretariat to educate the next generation about the dangers our world faces due to ozone depletion and what we can do to fix it. We’ve made incredible progress so far with scientists, policymakers and governments working together and taking urgent steps to control and phase out ozone-depleting substances. However, we still have a long way to go before the damage is completely undone.
The story of the ozone layer and how the world joined together to protect it, is ultimately a story of hope. It’s one that we need to teach children, inspiring them to continue to work towards a healthy planet. Reset Earth is a platform to tell this story, and in doing so, educate and inspire the next generation of leaders to unite in protecting the ozone layer.
