Hi Alice,

I think it's a great idea that the AUC is seeking contributions. If you can
get to the decison makers there, could you suggest that they vastly improve
the mechanism by which these contributions are sent in.

The attachment mentions that "Contributions can be shared publicly or sent
directly to <email-address>" and no further information is given about how
to publicly contribute.

Perhaps they could consider

a) Designing and launching a well structured survey that get's the
contributions in a structured way that can the be used in some strategic
planning document.

b) Designate a public mailing list for open contributions and deliberations.

A vision for 2063 certainly needs a befitting mechanism for seeking in-put.
