Deep Time Walk (Sustainable Living Festival)
A step back in time to look at how we can protect the future.
This 4.6km Deep Time Walk is a transformative journey, led by Jess Fairfax, Werribee River Association Sustainability Officer, that guides people through the 4.6 billion years of Earth history. The distance walked is used to explore the vast time scales and developments of our planet. This is an immersive learning experience designed to encourage further thinking, emotional connection, positive action, and advocacy for a regenerative Earth.
The walk can take up to three hours, starting from Federation Bridge, the entrance to Wyndham Park, off Comben Drive, Werribee. The walking route will travel along the Werribee River.
Wear comfortable footwear and appropriate clothing.
The concept for the Deep Time Walk was co-created by Dr. Stephan Harding, Deep Ecology Research Fellow at Schumacher College (England) and his MSc student, the geologist Sergio Maraschin in 2007 it is now delivered by thousands of community facilitators from Bali to Cape Town, New York to Melbourne.
