Take the #TurnBackTheClockChallenge!
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Doomsday Clock.
The Doomsday Clock is a metaphor for how dangerous this moment in human history is - and the urgent need to get involved. We want to hear about the actions that inspire you and how we can work together to save the world.
Since 1947, the Clock has been a symbol for how close humanity is to destroying itself with nuclear weapons, climate change, and disruptive technologies.
Our belief is that because humans created these problems, we have the obligation and opportunity to fix them. So, in the 75th year of the Doomsday Clock, we're asking people to share their ideas about what can be done to turn back the Clock.
Challenge submissions can share:
- Positive actions that inspire you
- People or groups who are making a difference
- How you and your community are helping to make the world safer
Share your challenge submissions in whatever format you communicate best, whether that's through art, writing, videos, or song.
To join the challenge, simply share your ideas to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or TikTok with the hashtag #TurnBackTheClock.
On this, the most depressing holiday of the year, @BulletinAtomic's #DoomsdayClock announcement, @MeltTheBandNYC releases our new song #WalkToMidnight! Let's reverse the walk to midnight and #TurnBackTheClock. https://t.co/9koNv3Aiac https://t.co/sQWjpLLEAX

The #DoomsdayClock remains at 100 seconds to midnight.
As @hankgreen points out, this is not so much stasis as a balance of new improvements (such as fighting the pandemic with new technologies) and many new risk developments.@FLIxrisk agrees, it's time to #TurnBackTheClock. https://t.co/HcJWGNFjZO

When I am not always optimistic about the future, @hankgreen's words are inspiring. Want to uplift the idea to choose one thing to care about and trust others to take on the other challenges. I #TurnBackTheClock by working with @citizensclimate to put a price on carbon! https://t.co/vZar780EFv

We in the Aerospace Community need to stand together. Threats from Anti-Satellite Tests and the misuse of orbital assets for military purposes help to march the doomsday clock closer to midnight. Space is for Science. Not for militarization. #TurnBacktheClock

My way of helping to #turnbacktheclock is working to build a small, electric robot that can replace full-sized cars for delivery services, cutting emissions and giving roads back to people. Importantly, it needs to be recycleable and durable to cut down waste too 1/2

A Performance Art compilation from HK artists echoing Doomsday Clock 2022. All tracks are set to be 100s. When time's up, the track will be terminated, all unfinished parts will be hard-cut and removed…#TurnBackTheClock #DoomsdayClock pic.twitter.com/5KR19c3IxF

It's still 100 seconds to midnight on the #DoomsdayClock. We can #TurnBackTheClock by supporting efforts to achieve global nuclear disarmament. Tell your government to join the #nuclearban treaty and tell your bank to stop investing in the companies that make nuclear weapons ☮️ https://t.co/SZKD3B6frP

Words are cheap and time is short. With the #DoomsdayClock at 100 seconds to midnight, world leaders need to prioritize steps to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in security, and decrease the risk that they will be used. @BulletinAtomic #TurnBackTheClock https://t.co/wPlxmyXZ7L

You're right about young people's ability to snuff out the BS, @hankgreen! Activists @beyondthebomb are some of the many young people putting nuclear policy at the intersection of racial, social, and climate justice. Join us and other young activists to #TurnBackTheClock! https://t.co/F3XYPDBIQt

#turnbacktheclock why are we not planting in urban areas more? What heppend to rooftop gardens? Wouldn't a drastic increase in green space help reduce C02 levels? And if food is grown we would also reduce food insecurity! This is an old idea so why has almost nothing been done?

Thank you @hankgreen for your incredible words today at the Doomsday Clock announcement. I think we all need to remember not to carry the weight of the world solely upon ourselves, but to share the load in good faith and curiosity for the betterment of us all. #turnbacktheclock
