About this Event

Watch this short video for information about this and other TED Circles.

This is the first "mobile" TED Circle which I have hosted, and is timed with my visit to Taipei around the TEDxWeekend Taipei.

About TED Circles

TED Circles is an open platform of small groups that meet for conversations about ideas. It’s a new TED initiative. 150 Pilot Hosts across 40 countries have volunteered to invite friends, neighbours, strangers, or a mix - to discuss a variety of interesting topics.

TED is running a pilot from September through November 2019 in order to shape the official launch in January 2020.

Hosted by volunteers, these weekly or monthly gatherings aim to empower us to dream and debate.

Each TED Circle is unique and all are virtually connected through the TED Circles platform - making it possible for local conversations to reach a global scale.

This TED Circle will last about 2 hours 30 mins. but we may go for a drink/meal afterwards. You may be expected to watch some 2-3 talks before we meet (like in a book club).

Anyone reading this is welcome to apply to join this Circle. The number of places is limited. Especially welcome are change makers, community activists and the entrepreneurially minded.

Any questions, just contact me.

Please note that this event will take place in cafe in Mengxia Park. There is no charge, but for sure we will need to spend some money to keep the cafe happy. If possible we may move onto the grass but we will have to see how things look on the day.

The route from the hotel TEDxWeekend Taipei people are staying in before hand is here .

It may not be possible to view TED talks in this environment so it will be necessary to have watched the recommended TED talks beforehand. and a repeat on Tuesday 29th once I arrive.

The event will formally end at 19:30 but we may go for a drink/meal afterwards.

Attendance is subject accepting our Code of Conduct

TEDxKazimierz Code of Conduct.

Purpose

A primary goal of all the conferences and user groups that refer to this Code of Conduct is to be inclusive to the largest number of contributors, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and religion (or lack thereof).

This Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

We invite all those who participate in our events to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.

Open [Source/Culture/Tech] Citizenship

A supplemental goal of this Code of Conduct is to increase open [source/culture/tech] citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between our actions and their effects on our community.

Communities mirror the societies in which they exist and positive action is essential to counteract the many forms of inequality and abuses of power that exist in society.

If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, we want to know.

Expected Behavior

Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you contribute to the health and longevity of this community.

Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.

Attempt collaboration before conflict.

Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.

Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert community leaders if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.

Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning speech or actions by any participant in our community online, at all related events and in one-on-one communications carried out in the context of community business. Community event venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.

Harassment includes: harmful or prejudicial verbal or written comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images (including presentation slides); inappropriate depictions of violence (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

If a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, the community organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).

If You Witness or Are Subject to Unacceptable Behavior

If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a community organizer as soon as possible. You can find a list of organizers to contact for each of the supporters of this code of conduct at the bottom of this page. Additionally, community organizers are available to help community members engage with local law enforcement or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behavior feel safe. In the context of in-person events, organizers will also provide escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.

Addressing Grievances

If you feel you have been falsely or unfairly accused of violating this Code of Conduct, you should notify one of the event organizers with a concise description of your grievance. Your grievance will be handled in accordance with our existing governing policies.

Scope

We expect all community participants (contributors, paid or otherwise; sponsors; and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues—online and in-person—as well as in all one-on-one communications pertaining to community business.
