|Summary text/ abstract||In 2001 more than 60 million Hindu pilgrims attended the Maha Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, making it the largest human gathering in recorded history. The crowds were so huge they could apparently be seen from outer space. But even on any ordinary day of the year, hundreds of thousands of people around the world are on pilgrimage. Indeed, at least 100 million people become pilgrims each year – whether for a few hours, days, weeks or months. And each is undergoing this journey in order to experience something sacred. It is as if whole cities are on the move, waiting to be transformed. Yet many pilgrimage sites have overwhelming amounts of plastic bottles, rubbish, and the remnants of food that involved pesticides, battery farming and wasteful practices. But imagine the good that could be done if people who go on pilgrimage are reminded oftheir sacred responsibility and debt to the Earth, and return home with more knowledge and understanding of what they can do to respect that.|
