Thanks RD!

Friends, we have arrived at this based on some of the suggestions we had and also with an intent to make it far more participative. We will make a few teams, each teams will brainstorm, choose a leader to present their views and then discuss the same with everyone during the discussion on a few topics. We may be able to accommodate some changes if needed.

Wishing you best light,
