Youth in the 2020s covers interviews with 5 young people aged between 17 and 27. We see what they are doing now, hope to be doing in the future, and how they feel the world could be improved.
Note: The Doomsday Clock was begun in 1947. The Doomsday Clock is a symbol that represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe. Maintained since 1947 by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the Clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technical advances. The Clock represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as “midnight” and the Bulletin‘s opinion on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of “minutes” to midnight, assessed in January of each year. The main factors influencing the Clock are nuclear risk and climate change. The Bulletin‘s Science and Security Board also monitors new developments in the life sciences and technology that could inflict irrevocable harm to humanity.
