Rockefeller Foundation ‘100 Resilient Cities Centennial’ Challenge
Deadline: October 14, 2013
The Rockefeller Foundation has launched the 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge to enable 100 cities to better address the increasing shocks and stresses of the 21st century. One hundred cities from across the globe will be selected to receive technical support and resources for developing and implementing plans for urban resilience.
Municipal government leaders, or major institutions that have a predominant affiliation / association with the city and demonstrate collaborative partnership with a municipal government, from across the globe are invited to register to apply on behalf of their city. Registration is required by September 23, 2013 in order to receive the application.
- Challenge applicants may include municipal governments or major institutions (e.g., a nonprofit organization, university, chamber of commerce, or research center) that have a predominant affiliation/association with the city and demonstrate collaborative partnership with a municipal government.
- Strong preference will be given to municipal government applicants, unless circumstances do not allow for a city to represent itself.
- All applicants will be required to submit a letter of support from the senior-most representative of their city’s government, whether elected or appointed.
- Only one application from each city will be eligible for consideration in the challenge.
- To be eligible for consideration, each applicant must agree to any and all legal terms and conditions of the challenge
