Kyoto Protocol Day is a holiday that is very important for society, because it is of great importance for those who care about the state of the environment. This day serves as a reminder that each individual can do something feasible to protect the environment from external influences.
In 1997, in the Japanese city of Kyoto, a protocol was signed, according to which it was required to take measures to protect the atmospheric air from pollution. In 2005, the Protocol became an international instrument. At the moment, many developed and developing countries are members of the Kyoto Protocol.
The main objective of the international instrument is for all countries to coordinate their efforts to protect atmospheric air and to implement the necessary set of measures for this. Each country has its own measures, depending on the current state of atmospheric air. Events can be held one-time and regularly.
It is known that, in accordance with the provisions of the Kyoto Protocol, participating countries are required to perform the following actions:
- Introduce the use of alternative energy sources that do not pollute the atmosphere;
- Develop models of cars that do not pollute the air with exhaust gases, and contribute to the promotion of such transport;
- Conduct educational and information activities among the population related to the protection of atmospheric air.
At the moment, the problem of air protection is one of the most urgent.

Celebrating this holiday is very simple, it is enough to make your own contribution to the protection of atmospheric air.
