Deep Time Walk, Innsbruck
Join us for a Deep Time Walk to travel through our geological past, better connect to the place we love and reflect on what it means to be a good ancestor.
What is this?
The Deep Time Walk is a journey through 4.6bn years of Earth’s history via a 4.6km guided walk.
This transformative experience enables you to grasp the enormity of our planet’s history and set our own species, Homo Sapiens, in context. It is an invitation to view the world differently, encouraging positive action and advocacy for a regenerative Earth.
Part history lesson, part mindfulness session, this walk is all about stepping out of our own lives and gaining a sense of the really Big Picture.
During the walk, your facilitator will guide you through some of the most significant events and key revolutions in Earth’s deep history from the formation of the solar system, to our own species and our impact on the earth. It will take+-2 hours and will include occasional stops for discussions and reflections along the way.
What to bring
This is an outdoor event and involves a 4.6km walk, which will take +-2.5 hours. Please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes. You may wish to bring water for the walk.
Where we’ll meet
We’ll meet in on the terrace of the venue, just in front of the little playground. Feel free to come early and have a coffee and enjoy the atmosphere before the walk. Registration and last-minute toilet & coffee breaks will last 15 minutes and we will leave promptly on the hour.

About the experience leaders
As facilitators our intention is to co-create a deep experience by walking together in the steps of the history of our planet. We are trained facilitators and coaches, not experts in ecological science. Our wish is to invite you to be part of a collective journey, combining head, heart and feet – an opportunity to question our place in the living world, and reflect on our individual and collective commitment for change.
