Green Start - Seoul takes on Green Challenge
 




“Countries have begun taking action but their progress is painfully slow.
The key to winning the war with climate change is in the hands of cities.” - Ken Livingston (former London Mayor)

1. World's Largest Cities Tackle Climate Change
More than 80 percent of greenhouse gases in the world are emitted by cities, which occupy only 2 percent of the global territory. Local and municipal governments must also take actions to prevent global warming. The world's big cities, which are both the victims and culprits of global warming, have joined hands to respond to climate change. 

2. Eyes on C40 Summit 
The C40 summit was launched in 2005 in London to encourage cities the world over to take responsibility for climate change and come up with ways to curb greenhouse gases. The third summit was held this year in Seoul, following the two previous ones held in London and New York. It served as an opportunity for representatives of the world's major cities to devise measures to respond to climate change. Some 500 delegates from 76 countries attended the event. This documentary takes a look at the severity of climate change and cities' responsibility.   

3. Seoul Goes Green
The host-city of the C40 summit, Seoul, achieved rapid economic growth over the past half a century, earning the nickname "miracle on the Han River." Seoul has been growing fast, becoming home to more cars, buildings and people than ever. But its dazzling growth has also produced a negative effect - environmental pollution. But recently Seoul has embarked on its transformation into a green city. The Cheonggye Stream and Nanjido, which were regarded as environmental disasters, have been reborn into eco-friendly areas and the landmarks of renewable energy use. This documentary takes a look at Seoul's transformation through the eyes of foreigners.

4. Green Dream Planted in a Desert
A carbon offset fundraising campaign was held during the C40 summit. It is crucial for cities to join hands in tackling climate change. This year, the donations will be used to plant trees in Chinese deserts, which are regarded as environmentally vulnerable areas. Members of a Korean NGO have visited Kubuqi Desert of China, which has earned the nickname "yellow disaster," to create a green forest in the devastated land covered with sand.
