Carbon neutrality by 2050 recommitted by the South Korean president on the occasion of the nation's 'Arbor Day.'
In a symbolic move, President Moon, together with a group of elementary school students, planted trees where used to stand the nation's very first coal power plant.
"Many countries have agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to slow global warming. South Korea has also said it'll go carbon neutral by 2050. As we cannot completely stop emissions, one important way to absorb carbon is by planting lots of trees."
A park is being built there now as a thermal power plant, based on LNG, has been built underground.
The president also introduced a plan to plant 3 billion trees by 2050to foster an "urban forest."
