The city of Seoul is running a ‘car-free week’ through this Sunday.
The city hopes to reduce air pollution from cars, cut greenhouse gas emissions and encourage more people to use public transportation.
Sunday will be ‘Seoul Car-Free Day’, so the city will block off Sejong-daero street from Gwanghwamun to Seoul Plaza and hold an eco-friendly event there.
Starting in the late 90s in Europe, now some two-thousand cities in 47 countries hold a car-free day.
