Hi Adeyinka Adewole  Welcome to the Prize Community!
It exciting to see a food vision for poultry that engages and integrates the entire community in the process.
Have you had a chance to research the dreams and aspirations of stakeholders in Oyo State's Food System in 2050?
Since your Vision will be designed specifically for the Place and People you’ve selected, it will be very valuable to understand the needs, aspirations, motivations, and challenges of your Place and its People. You can find some inspiration and tools to help you with your research in the Vision Prize Toolkit in Chapter 3 under Tools of Transformation.
Here's the link to the Prize Toolkit:

Look forward to seeing your Vision evolve in the coming weeks.
