Summary of meeting
The CIG discussions included:
Previously the CIG members had discussed the idea of running the CIG using the Principles of Co-Production.

- An Introduction – with some background about how the idea of Co-Production came about.
- Mini debate – members were split into groups and given time to write down their thoughts about what Co-Production and what the most important aspects are.
- Videos on Co-production – The group were shown 2 videos. One a Co-Production quiz and the other a video about the differences between Co-Production and Participation. Members discussed their content
