The National Ozone Unit representatives organized, under the motto “Keeping cool and carry on the good work”, a Clean–up activity, in different areas of the Dajti National Park. The activity combined the cleaning of the National road, removal and lifting of garbage, cleaning of the Erzeni River.
Under the guidance of NOU representative, youth activists engaged in community for social change, distributed to the passers-by and to the residents of the nearby zones, leaflets prepared by the NOU, with detailed information regarding the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone layer, main causes of Ozone layer depletion and the importance of the Ozone Layer protection.
Another component of the advocate activity was the dissemination of practical information, such as pledging the residents of the nearby rural areas to use only organic products and cut down the usage of the products that cause the depletion of the ozone layer, to use refrigerators, air conditioners and other equipment responsibly, in order for all of us to assist in protecting the ozone layer and highlighting the evidence that the Ozone depletion is the major cause for today’s climatic conditions.
In order to boost awareness, the Ozone Day 2018 Poster was unfolded on the street corner of the National Road.
The result of this awareness campaign was massive information as the National Road and the National Natural Park is quite crowed on these days. As a general feedback it is worth mentioning that the initiative undertaken by the NOU to clean roads, river and fields and the efforts to preserve the environment through dissemination of practical information and materials were highly commended by the residents of the nearby zones and passers-by.
