The city of Seoul took part this weekend in the global lights-out campaign “Earth Hour” to give the planet a break and protect the environment.
The capital city turned off the lights at the landmarks including City Hall, Namsan Seoul Tower and the Han River bridges for an hour on Saturday starting at 8:30 PM.
The city government also encouraged private facilities such as hotels and malls to join.
Held every year on the last Saturday of March, “Earth Hour” was created by the World Wide Fund for Nature in Sydney, Australia in 2007.
Seoul has been participating since 2008.
