100 Seconds to Midnight – webinar

30th July 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

100 Seconds to Midnight What does this mean? What can we do?
On In January 2020, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set the Doomsday Clock to ‘100 seconds to Midnight’ indicating that humanity is the closest we have ever been to a potential catastrophe from climate change or nuclear weapons use.

Since then, COVID-19 has impacted on nuclear security, tensions between nuclear-armed States have deteriorated, the US Senate has authorised funding for resumed nuclear tests and the few nuclear arms controls that still exist are being further eroded.

Speakers and Chair:

Chair: Marc Finaud (Switzerland), Head of Arms Proliferation, Geneva Centre for Security Policy

Introduction to the Abolition 2000 webinars: Marzhan Nurzhan (Kazakhstan/Switzerland), Convenor, Abolition 2000 Youth Network. PNND Coordinator for Commonwealth of Independent States Countries.
