Thanks @JohnAdams for sharing these thoughts and ideas
The themes look very interesting and engaging
I wanted to also suggest we think about format of the TAG , alongside the themes and topics. My experience of the last few TAG meetings has been that the majority of time has been taken up / scheduled beforehand - and that generally the approach for sessions has been some presentations, followed by group discussion. Before we know it, the music stops and we’re off to the next session!
I’d advocate for some dedicated open space (or even thematic space - a room dedicated to Policy Markers, anyone?!) where people can gather and focus on a topic, but without the pressure on some to present / facilitate. In turn, that might help more people to participate, rather than listen.
Of course, there’s still ample room for other formats - but I’d welcome any space along these lines.
And yes - maybe I’ll be the only one in the Policy Marker room (but I guess @Herman will be there!)
