Kumbh Mela Ganga Campaign

MCMEF, in association with the Indian Council for Enviro-Legal Action, campaigned extensively to spread grassroots awareness about conserving the Ganga and Himalayas. A camp was been set up at Haridwar, where the Kumbh Mela was taking place, which was being used as a base for organizing workshops, talks, and awareness-raising on these issues.

We collected over one million signatures to pressurize the government to take immediate and effective measures to protect the Himalayas and the Ganga from the onslaught of damming and other destructive development projects taking place in this eco-fragile region.
