World Humanist Day guided geological walk and picnic

Date: Sunday 18th June   /   Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm

Enjoy this geologically inspired walk led by Angus Miller in Edinburgh.  A bespoke walking tour for those interested in the deep-time aspects of geology and its relevance to Humanism and Humanists. Approximately two hours in duration, booking for the walk is essential, and as places are limited, we kindly ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you can’t make it.

The walk will be followed by a celebratory picnic outside the Ranger Education Centre in Holyrood Park. For those joining the picnic at around 1.30pm there will be a warm welcome to all, with some light refreshments plus a chance to meet fellow Humanists and those interested in Humanist ideas. There is no need to book for the picnic, just see what the weather is like.  Hear what those who do the walk have to say, plus chat with those who are there to socialise.  Bring along lunch or a snack and stay for as long as feels right!

This is organised by the Edinburgh Humanists local group as part of a programme of events celebrating World Humanist Day, supported by Humanist Society Scotland, working towards a more secular, rational, and socially just country.

Get your name on the list!

This guided walk is open to all Humanist Society Scotland members, supporters, and anyone who shares our vision and values.

The walk will begin at 11.30am promptly, starting outside the National Museum in Chambers Street (by the outdoor steps) ending up in Holyrood Park by the Education Centre at 1.30pm approximately.

Participation is at your own risk.  Please wear sensible walking shoes, and clothes appropriate to the Scottish weather! A water bottle or flask and snacks is also a good idea, and who knows… perhaps sunscreen or a woolly hat?!

You will be sent an email confirmation, and a reminder email nearer the time.
