The external scenario, representing Portugal on 30 April 2010, was presented to the entire group, after which the participants were divided into three teams, each of which was given a different decentralization scenario. Participants discussed the scenario for five hours (with a long break for lunch), following a format of structured questions. To conclude the day, the participants were brought back together into a single group to compare their experiences under the different decentralization scenarios and to discuss some more general issues.
