paper-based response sheets.
These sheets are currently accessible in digital form online, and here
is an opportunity for wider circles of communities to engage with the
IRPC Charter in an abridged form.
The IRPC Charter work and that of other DCs could really benefit from
this sort of exercise as it allows, in the case of the 21 ideas/articles
presented on the IRPC Sheet, people to respond to each Article one by one.

view, and these provide some powerful insights on how younger people
(under-graduate age) consider the substance of the Charter. This you can
