Protecting Our Atmosphere for Generations to Come: 25 Years of the Montreal Protocol


The signing of the Montreal Protocol in September 1987 launched an unprecedented global effort in the protection of the environment. To this day, the Vienna Convention and the Montreal Protocol are the only universally ratified treaties, uniting 198 countries in taking on the fight against man-made ozone depleting substances.

This short documentary was produced for the United Nations Environment Programme Ozone Secretariat and OzonAction Programme, on the occasion of the Protocol’s 25th anniversary. This documentary tells its story; how it started, how it grew stronger and stronger with time, how its unique mechanism of funding and assistance has turned it into the success.

The 25th anniversary documentary includes, both amateur and professional filming, from more than 40 countries around the world.
