It was hosted by the Taiwan Scout Educational Association, in collaboration with Rover Scout. A total of 82 people from the Senior Girl Scouts and Five Tiger Hill Scouts participated in the event. There were also scouts from various regions in North, Central, and South. This forum provides a platform for academic exchanges and invites scout professionals to publish research articles to enhance the academic atmosphere of domestic scouting.
