The meeting took place behind closed doors. The G8 already has a well-established operating procedure. The heads of state and government meet in a narrow format and only the sherpas, the personal representatives of the G8 leaders, are allowed into the session.
Following the first meeting three documents were adopted: Education for Innovative Societies in the 21<sup>st</sup> century, Global Energy Security, and Fight Against Infectious Diseases.
Before beginning their work the G8 leaders interacted in an informal, friendly setting. The conversation was held in English.
