    2022 National Rover Conference was held on 19 to 23 August at Yangmingshan Scout Camp in Taipei, Taiwan.
    The theme of the 2022 National Rover Conference is “Keep Rovering,” which encourages rover scouts to continue their path in Scouting after the Pandemic. This is the first in-person event for Rover Scouts at the national level after the pandemic. It attracted some 150 participants and staff members for this five-day event.

    Mr. Su, Te-Hsiang, Secretary General, attended the opening ceremony and outlined the 2022-2025 Triennial plan for TGASC-Taiwan. He encouraged rovers to participate in more international events, like World Scout Moot, Regional Youth forum, World Scout Conferences, Etc.

    NRC 2022 invited many speakers, most of whom were former rover scouts, to share their experiences in Scouting and career development. Rover Scouts had a fruitful discussion about the issues concerning young people, and they also discussed programs related to Scouts for SDGs and the Better World Framework. The highlight of the conference was a Hackathon that encouraged rover scouts to submit proposals within 24 hours. The top 4 projects were selected by a jury, and a bonus of USD170 was given as a seed fund for their projects.

    Other than meeting and discussion, the participants also enjoyed themselves during the evening campfire, night market, and Summer Party.
