Art of Walking

June 14 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

£5 – £10

The Kinross-shire Climate Café will meet before our summer break on 14th June in the centre of Milnathort and walk together to Tillywhally Community Woodland. The walk will be an experience of our fragmented and volatile nature in the modern world. The woodland provides a very small wildlife habitat in a sea of agricultural land scarred by the road’s network. Nevertheless it is a place where woodland birds raise their chicks, pipistrelle bats hunt for moths and lonely hares and deer seek refuge at night.

We will enjoy a mindfulness walk, observing nature and looking for signs of its adaptation to climate change and habitat loss.

After the walk we will return to Milnathort Town Hall to enjoy refreshments and share home-made food to nourish and connect with each other.

This will be followed by a screening “Of Walking On Thin Ice” organised by Milnathort Filmhouse Community Cinema. It is a film made by Benjamin Wigley, following the 500-mile journey (Camino to COP26) made on foot by hundreds of climate activists from Bristol and London to Glasgow for the COP26 Climate Conference in November 2021. “Of Walking On Thin Ice” is a beautiful film which captures the spirit of hope in action, embodied by the Camino, and the community of care and connection that was formed on this journey. The film shows us not only how we can advocate and influence, but also BE the change that we want for our world.

That special “pilgrimage” took place a few years back. Reliving it will bring an opportunity to reflect on what has changed since then. The film will be followed by a discussion on benefits of walking, our links with nature and how we could preserve this for the future. It will also be a positive start to our Scottish summer to discover the benefits of gentle exercise.

Event price: £10/£5 (the reduction if you contribute sandwiches, scones or a cake to share).
