Bridge 2040 is a quick card game as bridge into the future. Players are encouraged to tell innovative stories about diverse characters in the year 2040. They encounter various trends, artworks and questions relating to society, economy, technology, urban planning, climate change, health, etc. The game was developed to connect different generations.

All Bridge 2040 creators

In the beginning of 2023, the Futurelab members Peter Haider, Denise Hirtenfelder, Nicolas Naveau and Maria Pfeifer joined forces to realize their idea for Bridge 2040 as part of the Futurelab Ideas Expedition. The Ideas Expedition takes place as an annual company internal competition and honors two winning projects by employees. The four diverse creators share their vision that in future there must be more inclusion for intergenerational groups in debates on future topics.
