What are roundtables?
Roundtables are where delegates have in-depth discussions about their Roundtable theme. Delegates of both sides research the topics in preparation for the discussions.
Each Roundtable will implement an action plan during the course of the conference.
At the conclusion of the conference, Roundtables will present on their action plans to a panel of experts and scholars.
TASC is determined to become a “ripplemaker” in both Taiwan and America. Roundtables are where TASCers turn ideas into actions. Our actions in turn inspire even more people to understand the issues and make a difference.
How does roundtable work?
Before meeting in Taiwan, Roundtables will hold online meetings. Pre-conference meetings are an opportunity for delegates to get to know each other, discuss relevant topics, and brainstorm possible action plans.
speeches and site visits
Site visits and speaker events provide opportunities for TASCers to learn more about the issues they tackle in Roundtables through first hand experience and interactions with renowned experts.
"RT Days" will be scheduled into the itinerary. On RT Days, each Roundtable can visit relevant sites, connect with the local community, prepare for their final presentation, or carry out action plans. Each Roundtable has full discretion over how to run their RT Days.
Mid-Conference, there will be one day for Roundtables to share their progress with other Roundtables and receive helpful suggestions from one another. Delegates will also have the chance to share their thoughts on the conference so far.
On the last day of the conference, distinguished guests and alumni from various fields will join us for our final forum. Here, Roundtables present their action plans they have carried out, share reflections on their action plans, and propose for more initiatives. Our guests and alumni provide constructive criticisms and recommendations for the long-term implementation of the action plans.
TASC is currently entering its third year. As our body of alumni increases, our network and influence expand as well. TASC is currently building a platform to share the proposals brought up each year, so that alumni from each year can provide guidance. As TASC alumni, we will continue to engage actively with TASC to ensure progress in Taiwan, the United States, and the world.
