After the presentation and a break people split into working groups around six practical projects to get on with it: (i) cre8 summat - local social and environmental community work and art projects; (ii) Indymedia - how to get involved in independent reporting around the summit; (iii) Cycle caravan - hosting and organising a critical mass for the www.g8bikeride.org.uk ; (iv) Go to scotland - organising transport and "camping"; (v) Climate change - day of action July 8; (vi) Wimmin and queer mobilisation - networking and outreach; (vii) Fundraising - local gigs.
There is a website in the making to keep track of the developments - it can be found here:

Some mailinglists will be set up and further meetings are being organised!

The public meeting was very successful and most people left in a good mood, motivated to do things.
