Bridges to the Future

Bringing new perspectives to Denver about the world's most pressing issues

Bridges to the Future is DU's premier program for generating local discussions about pressing global issues and how they might impact the future.

Each year, DU chooses a theme and schedules a series of lectures and community events that address that topic. All the events are free and open to the community. 

2014 – 2015 Theme: Transforming Media: New Realities of the Digital Age

In academic year 2014-15, Bridges to the Future is exploring the cultural shift of the digital revolution on multiple facets of our daily lives. Everything from where we get our news to our sense of community is evolving. Are we directing technology or is it directing us?
