The pilgrimage on Saturday (9 September) was part of a network of walks taking place across the UK over the same weekend, organized by the group Christian Climate Action.
Participants included people of all ages, children and dogs from a mix of local faith and environmental groups.
From York Minster, the pilgrims walked to St Nicks Environment Center and back into the city across the Millennium Bridge, stopping along the way for moments of prayer and reflection.
Phoebe, from Christian Climate Action York, said: “We hope actions like this will allow everyone to express their care and love for our earth, connect with the nature around them and each other, and inspire further action for change. ”
The group said the route was chosen to help residents think about how climate change is affecting local people.
