In order to build a ski slope for the 2018 Olympic Games, a swathe of Ancient Korean woodland is under threat. Avvaaz has petitioned the Olympic Committee thusly:
To the International Olympic Committee and the South Korean government:
As concerned citizens from across the globe, we call on you to stop the destruction of forest on Mount Gariwang for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, and to protect what remains of this forest that has been a sanctuary for over 500 years. We urge the IOC to ensure that all Olympic Games truly live up to ideals of sustainability and environmental protection.
