The third and final design session should involve you and participants collaboratively developing concrete possibilities for solutions/growth/implementable change.

Roundtables will link two sessions: the Info Blitz on Saturday, and the Breakout Discussions on Sunday.
If you're interested in being a part of something academic at C2C, but don't want to commit to facilitating a Working Group, Roundtables are right for you!
For the Info Blitz, you'll give a brief overview of the topic or problem you're interested in, why it's interesting, and how you'd like to go about solving it. From there, participants will choose what topics interest them the most, and be sorted into groups for Sunday's activity.
During the Breakout Discussions, you'll facilitate a half-hour brainstorming and evaluation session, focused on exploring concrete possibilities surrounding your topic or problem. How you do so is up to you!

A few guidelines:
Before presenting, make sure you understand the problem. This means you can explain the relevant information in a few short sentences, and ask meaningful questions that can spark productive and constructive discussion.
Make your problem/topic real and concrete! Explain how it's connected to the "real world", and what impacts potential solutions could have.
Skill Sessions are usually run by a mix of C2C attendees and interesting people from the host community.
During the 45-minute Skill Sessions, participants get to expose themselves to new skills and areas of interest; anything from juggling, to meditation, to beatboxing and beyond are welcome!
