Children of Doom 2020



Due to the current overall situation, Children of Doom - Festival of Science will not take place in Berlin on 15 & 16 May 2020 as planned. But this is not the end of the world! We plan to announce a new date for the event at a later date.


Children of Doom is an annual science festival in Berlin that brings together a community of hopeful but critical people who firmly believe in working together to find solutions to global challenges. The festival stands for innovative science communication and uses the stylistic device of dystopia to draw the necessary attention to the pressing issues of the time.

The premiere took place in May 2019 at the Hafen Rummelsburg. Children of Doom 2020 will take place again at the same location from 15-16 May.

The concept of Children of Doom is based on the following 3 elements:

Science - Survival - Sustainability

At the 2020 festival, the focus will be on biotechnology, artificial intelligence and climate change. High-calibre talks and a large number of interactive workstations will spark constructive discussions on future topics and promote scientifically based interactions in this regard.
