In Mecca, dreams of a ‘green hajj’

A smaller carbon footprint, less waste, and more environmentally friendly — this year’s pilgrimage to Mecca, dramatically scaled down due to coronavirus, has opened up the prospect of a “green hajj”. This year’s dramatically downscaled Hajj pilgrimage has had a much less adverse effect on the environment than previous years (AFP Photo/STR) In addition to being a logistical and security headache, one of the planet’s largest gatherings, which drew some 2.5 million people last year, also typically poses huge environmental challenges. The procession of so many worshippers, over a short time and in a limited space, results in an assault on the desert kingdom’s delicate environment. Thousands of vehicles generate substantial air pollution, while the pilgrims leave behind an avalanche of waste, including enormous quantities of plastic water bottles. This year’s hajj, limited to a maximum of 10,000 attendees, was by all accounts literally a breath of fresh air. But for environmental activist Nouhad Awwad, it’s not so much the size of the crowd that determines the impact on the environment but more “our collective behaviour”. “This year’s hajj, although taking place at a difficult time globally, can be a source of hope,” the Greenpeace campaigner told AFP. “It gives an idea of what a green pilgrimage could look like,” she added. The scenes in Mecca since the hajj began on Wednesday are very different from those of past years. Rather than the vast crowds that move between the sites, casting rubbish as they go and sometimes prone to deadly crushes, the movement of the pilgrims has been limited and orderly. Even the pebbles they use to symbolically “stone the devil” have been sanitised, as part of elaborate amenity kits provided by authorities that include disinfectant and masks. “Everything is clean and there are only a few municipal workers collecting the small amounts of garbage,” Azim Allah Farha, a pilgrim from Afghanistan who has performed the hajj several times before, said at Mount Arafat, the site of one of the main rituals. One of those workers, Rahim Fajreddine, recalls the hundreds of tonnes of rubbish — plastic bags, cans and food plates — left in past years at the rocky hill outside Mecca where pilgrims pray and repent in the high point of the hajj. “Large numbers of workers had to be mobilised to remove all the debris they left behind as they passed,” he recalled. Eco awakening Until recently, the environment was not a central concern of Saudi Arabia when it came to the hajj. As “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques”, the kingdom was concerned primarily with accommodating as many pilgrims as possible, mindful of the long waiting lists for Muslims, who must complete the hajj at least once in their lifetime if they are able. Huge extensions have been built in recent decades to increase the capacity of the two mosques and pilgrimage sites. Saudi Arabia hopes to welcome 30 million pilgrims to the kingdom annually by 2030. However, by 2018 the local authorities launched a waste separation programme and began to consider recycling. Signs in several languages were posted to encourage the pilgrims to do their bit and dispose of their waste properly. This year, despite the relatively tiny number of pilgrims, the municipality deployed more than 13,000 cleaners to the holy sites, equipped with hundreds of skips, according to an official statement. ‘This is our future’ Awwad said that although this year’s hajj is leaving a small environmental footprint because of the constraints generated by the global pandemic, in the future the same outcome must be achieved by choice. “By investing in sustainable development and adopting green practises, we can continue to live our traditions and perform our rituals while keeping our skies clear of pollution and our streets free of waste,” the activist said. She imagines “a hajj with its millions of pilgrims in total symbiosis with their environment, in a Mecca powered by solar energy”. In a kingdom that ranks as the world’s top energy exporter, and where the shift to renewables is going slower than planned, her vision is unlikely to become a reality any time soon.   “But this is the future we should all be working towards,” she insisted......»»

Collegiate leagues to benefit from establishment of NAS -- Tolentino

The establishment of the National Academy of Sports is not a threat to collegiate leagues according to Philippine Olympic Committee president Bambol Tolentino. Speaking to the POC-Philippine Sports Commission Press Corps via Zoom, Tolentino said that the trailblazing project of the government of putting up a secondary education academy for potential national athletes will actually benefit collegiate leagues like the UAAP and NCAA. “Hindi naman (kaagaw) kasi after that they’ll pursue into different colleges eh sa tertiary nila,” said Tolentino, also the representative of the eight district of Cavite. “Pag-aagawan na nga ‘yan. Mag-aagawan na ang UAAP at NCAA dyan kung sino ang kukunin.” He said that it will be more convenient for schools to recruit potential talents from NAS, who during their stay in the facility will get holistic quality education and special training to enable them to excel in their respective sports. “Pabor din sa university ‘yan kung sinong mago-offer,” said the POC chief, who is also the cycling head. “Na ito galing ito ng NAS, scholar ito. Malakas sa swimming ito o sa track and field. Pag-aagawan pa yan ng UAAP at NCAA or even international schools.” However, the directives on how potential student-athletes will be chosen or recruited to the NAS have yet to be discussed and if it will directly clash with the recruitment of collegiate teams. Member schools from the major collegiate leagues UAAP and NCAA have been investing heavily in their respective recruitment of programs. Most are already scouting for talents even from the elementary level to play for their high school teams, which then serves as their training pool for future players in their college teams.       On June 10, President Rodrigo Duterte signed the NAS Act which institutionalized an educational system within the framework of a national sustainable sports program.    The academy's main campus will be at the existing New Clark City Sports Complex in Capas, Tarlac, which will be constructed by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). This will give the students priority access to facilities at the New Clark City Sports Complex. The NAS is attached to the Department of Education (DepEd), in close coordination with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
