Chair: Malcolm Atkinson
| ||1400hrs|| Plenary session: Initiating the Working Groups
There will be 6 working groups that will operate in parallel. Each will have a leader, a scribe and reporter. Each will address a theme and identify the issues within that theme. They may raise issues for the other working groups.
Their goal is to resolve issues sufficiently so that they can:
1. Identify a potentially successful strategy for addressing them.
Allocate issues raised during planning and during the morning's experience stories to groups.
2. Suggest the priorities with which they should be addressed within their group.
3. Prepare a chapter of the final report which conveys their assessment of issues, strategy and roadmap successfully.
