About Climate Clock
The Climate Clock is one of the most dynamic climate campaigns in the world today, melding art, science, technology, and grassroots organizing to get the world to act in time.
The project is centred on a simple tool: a clock that counts down the critical time window to reach zero emissions (the “deadline”), while tracking progress on key solution pathways (“lifelines”).
By showing what to be done by when, the Clock frames its critical mission — a rapid and just transition to a safe climate future — and puts it at the very forefront of our attention.
Since its famous launch in New York in September 2020, Climate Clock teams have sprung up across the world from Chiapas to Kazakhstan, from Korea to Glasgow.
