Due to stormy weather forecast, the Deep Time Walk – planned for the Earth Day 2022, was postponed to 04 May 2022.
Join us for a walk of a different kind…
Have you ever noticed life around you? Have you ever thought about your life on this planet? In Deep Time Walk we will dive into the story of the Earth and travel across the 4.6 billion-year timeline at a rate of one million years per step. Starting at the formation of the solar system and the creation of Earth, Deep Time Walk covers significant events in Earth’s deep history, including the formation of the Moon, plate tectonics, the early evolution of life, dinosaurs and much more. The walk will put into context humanity’s rich ancestral heritage and give you an insight into the interconnectedness of all life.
This walk allows gaining new reflections about Planet Earth and the global climate emergency. Furthermore, it can surprise us about the place where we are working, studying and/or living, connecting us to the land in a different way we might be used to and discover new miracles at our footsteps.
Interested in knowing more about the Deep Time Walk? Listen to Stephan Harding’s episode on the Deep Time Walk at the Outrage + Optmism podcast!

Facilitated by Carolina & Antje.
