To enable 100 cities to better address major 21st century challenges, the Rockefeller Foundation is inviting cities from around the world to apply for the:
100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge
In August, cities can be nominated through a formal application process.
Winning cities will be announced in three rounds over the next three years, with the final round of winners named in 2015.
Each winning city will receive:
- Membership in the 100 Resilient Cities Network which will provide support to member cities and share new knowledge and resilience best practices.
- Support to hire a Chief Resilience Officer to oversee the development of a resilience strategy for the city and be part of a learning network of other CROs.
- Support to create a resilience plan, along with tools and resources for implementation.
Now is the time for action to ensure our cities remain places of opportunity for the next 100 years.
