On the day of the small group discussion (Monday), each of the 6 topic groups will be distributed into 5 discussion groups (i.e., each discussion group will have one member from each topic group, for a total of 6 members each). For each discussion group, each of the 5 members will be given 6 minutes to deliver their oral report and show/distribute their flyers. Members of the discussion group are encouraged to ask the reporter questions, or to give their own insight on the situation.
