Turbulent Waters: Conflict in the South China Sea
The South China Sea is an incredibly strategic body of water located between China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. At stake is one of the busiest trade routes in the world as well as oil and fishing rights. Recently China has been pressing its claim to long disputed parts of the South China Sea, raising concerns as to what may happen as tensions rise. Join Active Minds for a closer look at this delicate situation.

The Age of the Vikings
Join Active Minds as we trace the rise and fall of the Age of the Vikings. We will describe their origins in Scandinavia and how they extended their reach into Europe, North America, and beyond. We will explain the culture and traditions of the Norse Warriors, including their distinctive horned helmets and unique ships. Finally, we will discuss their legacy in modern times (besides the football team). This program makes a great accompaniment to a visit to the Vikings program running at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science March 10th through August 13th, 2017. This event is sponsored by The Carillon at Boulder Creek.

Turkey
A failed coup attempt and a flood of refugees have challenged the leadership of Turkey’s President Erdogan. A strong U.S. ally during the Cold War, Turkey is now one of the world’s largest Muslim democracies. Join Active Minds as we explore Turkey’s past and current challenges, including its struggles with its Kurdish minority, its role in the rise of ISIS, and what appears to be its warming relations with Russia. This event is sponsored by Frasier.
