Hi 哲夫 和田 welcome to the Food System Vision Prize Community!
What would life in your city (any particular city you chose out of Japan??) look like in 2050?
We've built a very comprehensive Food Vision Prize Toolkit with a lot of information, activities, and guidelines. The Toolkit will help you refine your Vision and make it systemic, human-centred and well informed for the future.
Here is the link to the Prize Toolkit:
Look forward to seeing your Vision evolve through the coming weeks.
