Steve Lawson: Dan Smith kicking things off here at Birmingham City Football Ground. Welcoming everyone. 'we have an amazing group with lots of different experience and perspectives"
Steve Lawson: Dan - "it's a complex, difficult issue so the more different perspectives we can get the better"
Steve Lawson: Dan - "over these few days, it's primarily over to you - it's not about training, it's a seminar - I don't know anything about your communities - you know, you need to find out what it is that you need to apply things to your communities"
Steve Lawson: Tariq introducing everyone to Birmingham "it's a privilege to be part of an event that brings peopel together from all across Europe. Welcome to Birmingham. It's an industrial heartland - from Cadbury's to Rover Cars, but it has other things too - Tolkein was from Birmingham and was inspired by the local area. South of here is Shakespeare country. We've also got some really innovative youth and community work going on here that we're going to give you an insight into here."
