The Legacy of World War I: A Flawed Peace
Earlier this year we marked the hundred year anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles and the end of World War I, join Active Minds for a look at how the agreements made at the Paris Peace Conference after “the Great War” sowed the seeds of conflict soon thereafter, as well as to the present day. This event is sponsored by The Carillon at Boulder Creek and Brookdale Meridian Boulder.

Putin’s Russia
Under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, Russia has been accused of illegally invading Ukraine and hacking the U.S. to influence the 2016 presidential election. Having stretched his influence far beyond the term of his first official Presidency and now having returned to the role and consolidated his power, Vladimir Putin’s leadership of Russia suggests a return to an authoritarianism that, for some, feels similar to the days of Soviet control and the Czars of old. Join Active Minds as we examine the story of Russia under the influence of Vladimir Putin.

Space Exploration: From the Moon Landing to Today and Beyond
Fifty years ago this past July, the United States landed the first manned space mission on the moon. Join Active Minds as we reflect on President Kennedy’s challenge, the space race, the Apollo Mission, and the role NASA has played since the lunar landing. We will bring the topic up to date by discussing the current political context for NASA and the rise of private space companies such as SpaceX, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, and others.
