Saturday, March 25, 2017
to We will meet at the Parkgate St main entrance to Phoenix Park from 7.45 (To leave at 8.00pm sharp).
This years Earth Hour takes place on Saturday the 25th of March 2017.
Walk Inniú is delighted to have been invited by the ‘Into the Night’ project and Valentine Seymour of London’s Farr Institute of Health Informatics to facilitate our Ecotherapy Hedge School as a mark of solidarity for action on climate change.
This free ‘Hedge School’ will include a silent mindful hour together outdoors to acknowledge our own process in relation to the continued destruction of our planet and will take place in the quietness of the park where we can collectively rest in the dark natural space.
Light pollution affects both us humans and other-than-human nature.
Join us on the 25th of March where we will explore how our wellbeing is affected by “excessive, poorly directed or unnecessary artificial light at night” (Into the Night). By attending, you will be taking part in an international survey which will further enhance our understanding of how light pollution not alone is a cause of climate change but is bad for our health.
Make sure you wear warm suitable clothing and footwear(keeping the weather in mind) and note that the responsibility of walking in the park in the darkness is your own. (This event is open to adults only 18+).
Do it for yourself, do it for the planet… you are one and the same!
