340 “Farmer’s Markets in the City” Open in Seoul

◈ “Farmer’s Markets” will be open from May to December at Gwanghwamun Square, Dream Forest, Hangang Park, and more.

This year marks the fourth anniversary of Farmer’s Markets in Seoul. In 2015, about 340 markets will be held in a wide variety of locations around Seoul, including five urban parks, seven Hangang Parks, and three downtown areas.

Through the Farmer’s Markets, the Seoul Metropolitan Government hopes to provide regular opportunities for farmers to sell their goods, and for consumers in the city to purchase fresh, affordable, and reliable produce.

Regular Farmer’s Markets will be held at Eunpyeong-gu’s Seoul Innovation Park on the first weekend of every month, Gangnam-gu’s Maru Park on the second weekend, Dongjak-gu’s Boramae Park on the third weekend, and in Gangbuk-gu’s Dream Forest on the fourth weekend. In particular, Gwanghwamun Square will host a farmer’s market every Sunday.

◈ Urban Parks: Selling over 200 types of produce for up to 30 percent less than market price

Over 200 types of specialty produce from 67 cities and districts, including 18 local governments that have signed MOUs with Seoul Metropolitan Government, such as Wando-gun and Suwon City, will be available for purchase at prices ranging from 10 to 30 percent lower than their market prices. Particularly, the agricultural and fishery products available at the farmer’s markets have been produced by a select number of carefully chosen producers in various cities and districts. Therefore, customers can rest assured that they are purchasing produce with guaranteed quality.

Diverse performances, experiential classes related to urban farming, and cultural events will be held at the markets as well, including a platform matching small-scale producers with consumers, fermented foods made by farmers, Grandma’s eco-friendly, herbicide-free garden, and events related to the Eat Good Food movement.

◈ Regional specialties from around the Hangang area to be sold at the Hangang Parks; produce from urban parks to be sold in downtown areas

Farmer’s markets will be held at the Hangang Parks in Ttukseom and Jamsil every weekend, and every two weeks at the Hangang Parks in Yeouido, Banpo, Yanghwa, Mangwon, and Ichon. Fresh produce from regions outside Seoul along the Hangang (River), such as Yangpyeong-gun and Gwangju City, will be available for purchase at these markets.

Organic produce and food from regional living cooperative associations will also be available, highlighting urban farmers and their produce. Of particular interest, the markets will feature professional chefs, who will be using the produce sold there as ingredients in a variety of delicious dishes, providing a chance for consumers to taste the goods before making their purchases.

Hangang Park Fountains Open in May

Seven fountains in the Hangang Parks will be in operation from May 1 to October 31. In addition to the Banpo Bridge Moonlight Rainbow Fountain and Yeouido Park Floating Fountain, which have been in operation since April 1, three fountains (Ttukseom Park Music Fountain, Cascade Fountain, and Nanji Park Mirror Fountain) will begin operation in May, and two fountains (Ttukseom Park Water Screen and Nanji Park Swimming Pool Fountain) will be open from July.

The operation of these fountains depends on the characteristics of the fountains as well as the city’s energy conservation efforts, and also varies by season and weekday/holiday. The hours of operation vary accordingly. The Hangang Park fountains are closed for cleaning and regular inspections on Mondays; the Yeouido Cascade Fountain is closed on Mondays and Fridays; and the Banpo Bridge Moonlight Rainbow Fountain operates daily.

Ttukseom Park Music Fountain is an in-ground musical fountain located in the open expanse of a riverside plaza. Since the musical fountain is easily accessible by the public and provides a safe place for children to play and their parents or guardians to rest, it has become incredibly popular. It is a great place to visit as part of a trip to the many surrounding green areas. In particular, the Ttukseom Water Screen offers a rare opportunity for people to watch animated films and other videos on a “screen of water” and enjoy spectacular musical fountain shows.

‣ Ttukseom Hangang Park: http://english.seoul.go.kr/life-information/natural-attractions/hangang/3-ttukseom/

Moonlight Rainbow Fountain is the world’s longest bridge fountain, spanning a distance of 1,140 meters, leading it to be registered in the Guinness Book of World Records on November 17, 2008. Its dazzling fountain shows with background music and colorful lights accentuate the beautiful night view of the Hangang River. Thanks to the vibrant feast of colorful lights and fantastic night performances, it has become a favored attraction for photographers. Moreover, it has gained popularity overseas by being featured in a number of Korean films and television dramas, such as Boys over Flowers and Iris.

‣ Banpo Hangang Park: http://english.seoul.go.kr/life-information/natural-attractions/hangang/6-banpo/

“Floating Fountain” at Yeouido Hangang Park, installed alongside the world’s first floating performance stage, showcases multimedia content combined with musical fountains and LED lights. There are often large numbers of passersby stopping to watch the shows here. The Cascade Fountain, located next to the Floating Fountain, both visualizes and auralizes the flow of water using the geological drop. It is also a popular place for family picnics, owing to the great scenery of the Hangang River and the variety of performances and cultural events.

‣ Yeouido Hangang Park: http://english.seoul.go.kr/life-information/natural-attractions/hangang/8-yeouido/

Mirror Fountain in Nanji Park is a 12,300-square-meter in-ground fountain and a great place to visit as part of a trip to the nearby Silver Grass Field in Haneul Park or the World Cup Stadium. The visual scenery and attractions of this place are enjoyed by Koreans and foreigner visitors alike. In particular, the Swimming Pool Fountain at Nanji Park is renowned for its vibrant dancing streams of water, and is particularly favored by families with children, as they can enjoy the fountain while swimming in the public pool.

Seoul Named “Global Earth Hour Capital 2015”

Seoul has been awarded the title of “Global Earth Hour Capital 2015” by the Earth Hour City Challenge (EHCC), which is hosted by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in partnership with ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability.

  • ※ 2013: Vancouver (Canada), 2014: Cape Town (South Africa)
  • ※ Earth Hour City Challenge (EHCC): An initiative designed by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to mobilize
    action and support from cities in the global transition toward a climate-friendly, one-planet future by reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable cities in partnership with ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability

글로벌-최우수-환경도시상을-수상하는-박원순-서울시장-3

The Earth Hour City Challenge (EHCC) Awards was initially designed in an attempt to promote the achievements made by cities around the world to become climate-friendly, eco-friendly cities, and this year marks the third anniversary of the awards ceremony since its launch in 2013. From among cities that submit details of their efforts to become more eco-friendly—including pledges, activities, and carbon emission reduction achievements—to ICLEI’s carbonn Climate Registry (cCR), a reporting platform for the initiative, winners are selected through a comprehensive, in-depth evaluation by an international jury of experts from the UN, international organizations, and international institutions.

In 2014, Seoul was appointed as one of the National Earth Hour Capitals, and has now been awarded the title Global Earth Hour Capital for 2015, being recognized as the top eco-friendly city in the world. This year, 163 cities participated in the Earth Hour City Challenge, two times more than last year (66 cities).

It was announced that the Seoul Metropolitan Government had successfully engaged Seoul citizens in addressing environmental issues through a myriad of initiatives, including “One Less Nuclear Power Plant” and “Eco Mileage.” As a rising megacity in Asia and a recognized leader in local climate action, the city’s innovative thinking and strong initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by increasing renewable energy use received high acclaim.

Other National Earth Hour Capitals (15 countries) include: Paris, France; Vancouver, Canada; Jakarta, Indonesia; City of Singapore, Singapore; Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Tshwane, South Africa; Montería, Colombia; Córdoba, Spain; Lahti, Finland; Thane, India; Petaling Jaya, Malaysia; Puebla, Mexico; Gothenburg, Sweden; Hatyai, Thailand; and Evanston, USA.
