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.
