The Elders to announce the 2023 Doomsday Clock


The Doomsday Clock has been a powerful international symbol for communicating existential threats for over 75 years.

In the face of intractable challenges that threaten humanity – from the climate crisis, to pandemics, to the risk of nuclear confrontation and the scourge of conflict – The Elders will be revealing the 2023 Doomsday Clock and outlining the urgent actions world leaders must take.


Tune in live on 24 January from 10am EST/3pm GMT as The Elders join the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in Washington for the 2023 announcement.
