Officials at Mount Emei Scenic Area in China's Sichuan Province have launched an environmental protection campaign to promote a low-carbon lifestyle.

Local officials call for residents to take public transport and limit the use of air conditioners. 

The campaign, lasting from August 3rd to September 20th, coincides with the 20th anniversary of Mount Emei being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Half-price tickets are offered to select tourists who take pictures that reflect the themes of environmental protection and green development.
