Design, Health and Finance in a Pop-Up Megacity: Lessons from the 2013 Kumbh Mela

Every 12 years, millions of Hindu pilgrims travel to the Indian city of Allahabad for the Kumbh Mela, the largest public gathering in the world. Estimates are that as many as 30 million people visited in a single day this past February, and that up to 200 million visited over the eight week event. Harvard was represented by a team of 35 researchers studying how devotion, health, finance and policy come together in the world’s largest pop-up megacity. HBS professor John Macomber will discuss some of their findings. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to MRCBG@hks.harvard.edu
