Event description
Join a 4.6km Deep Time Walk to travel across Earth's 4.6 billion year timeline at a rate of one million years per metre.

About this Event

This Deep Time Walk, along the beautiful foreshore between Brighton and Point Ormond, will give you a radically different perspective on the development of our planet, humanity's rich ancestral heritage and the interconnectedness of life. It will help you comprehend deep time - the vast age of our Earth - and explore the destructive impact of our species is having on the integral functioning of our living world.

Deep time provides "a radical perspective, provoking action not apathy ... [it] is the catalysing context of intergenerational justice." A deep-time perspective requires us to consider not only how we will imagine the future, but how the future will imagine us. It asks a version of Jonas Salk’s arresting question: “Are we being good ancestors? ” Robert MacFarlane

We will meet near the end of North Road, Brighton and finish near the same location. I will send the exact location after booking.
