Below is the official congratulatory message of Chairman Ban Ki-moon

I applaud the International Day of Clean Air for blue skies.

I support and commend the activities of DAEJAYON, establishing a cooperative system to restore clean air by appointing Blue Sky Ambassadors around the world, and inspiring action towards solving the fine dust dilemma.

Air pollution is now having a significant impact on both human health and the environment. The WHO estimates that 90 percent of the world’s population is exposed to air pollution, and 7 million people each year face an early death due to air pollution. As many countries around the world are suffering from fine dust and air pollutants, the UN has designated the International Day of Clean Air for blue skies, indicating that the efforts of global citizens are needed.

There are no borders in the sky. We all live under the same atmosphere. The sky reminds us that we are sharing one home, the Earth, transcending nations, races, and cultures.

Therefore, international solidarity and cooperation is more important than ever to solve the fine dust predicament. Blue Sky Ambassadors worldwide, who are the future generation, are taking action to restore clean air.

Now the world needs you. You are the next Blue Sky Ambassadors we are looking for. Show your influence for clean air!
