Keep Bridge Alive

The University of Stirling has launched the international ‘Keep Bridge Alive’ CrowdFunder to establish the Sociology of Bridge and to communicate messages about the benefits of bridge beyond the bridge world.  This emerging academic field explores interactions within the mind sport, well-being, healthy ageing and social connection as experienced in the bridge community.  The key goals of this research are to transform the image of bridge, to increase participation and enhance the sustainability of the mind sport.

The Keep Bridge Alive (KBA) campaign aims to attract new players to our game via innovative and collaborative approaches (including targeted resources aimed at children, young people, families as well as policy-makers, employers and teachers). Keep Bridge Alive is about taking action to share best practice, pool resources and develop an evidence-base to re-brand and grow the bridge world. This as an excellent opportunity to do something different and create momentum for change within the bridge community.
