Pedal power lights Copenhagen's Christmas tree

A brilliant idea: Copenhagen’s annual Christmas tree this year will be lit up with the help of bicycles.

Danish citizens can ride the 15 bicycles in Copenhagen’s City Hall Square to create enough power for the 700 LED bulbs that adorn the 17-meter-tall tree.

You can see the Christmas tree and the effort here.

This is one of the several features in City Hall Square that will transform this civic space into an environmentally-friendly arena from December 7th to December 18th.

Hopefully, this will help bring attention to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15) occurring during the same time period in Copenhagen.
