洛克菲勒基金会发起2013年世纪创新挑战
新竞赛旨在向改变非正规工人的创新者授予奖金

(2013年2月11日,纽约)洛克菲勒基金会宣布了一项新竞赛,旨在寻求促进世界非正规经济体中贫困弱势工人生计的方法。该项赛事设于洛克菲勒基金会百年华诞之际,世纪创新挑战(Centennial Innovation Challenge)将考虑选出最多10名最终人选,他们有机会申请高达10万美元的奖金,并赢得书写提案方面的支持,使得提交的创意得以进一步发展。

18亿人口迫不得已地在非正式经济体中找到其生计——部分或完全游离于政府法规外的企业与工作。非正规工人缺乏如退休金与医疗保险等基本安全网,并且如果他们被拒绝支付收入或被赶入不安全的环境中,通常没有追索权。推进对非正规工人的工作环境、法律权益与社会福利,将会为全球数以百万的贫穷弱势人口的经济社会赋权打开崭新的道路。

“洛克菲勒基金会正试图挖掘如今社会创新者的创造力与奉献精神,以解决世界上最迫切的挑战,并保证非正规工人可以获得公平的成长,同时在日益动荡的世界上建立恢复力,”洛克菲勒基金会主席,朱迪思·罗丁博士说道,“我们可以一同绘制新路径,这些路径将改变全球非正规经济体中工作的数十亿生命。”

非正规就业是全球经济中一个显著且正在扩大的部分,其占北非与拉丁美洲50%的就业,占亚洲65%的就业,并占撒哈拉非洲以南地区72%的就业。鉴于非正规工人的巨大数量,带动推进非正规经济体中工人生计的创新就至关重要。

关于2013世纪创新挑战的创意将会被在线收集于challenge.rockefellerfoundation.org上,截止日期为2013年4月1日。竞赛有资格要求、正式条款及条件,并且在受法律限制或禁止的情况下无效。完整信息及官方条款与条件可在竞赛网站上找到。

The Rockefeller Foundation Launches the 2013 Centennial Innovation Challenge

New competition seeks to award grants to innovators who are transforming the livelihoods of informal
workers

(February 11, 2013 – New York City, NY) The Rockefeller Foundation announced a new competition in
search of solutions that will improve livelihoods for poor or vulnerable workers in the world’s informal
economies. Launched in celebration of The Rockefeller Foundation’s centennial anniversary, the
Centennial Innovation Challenge will consideras many as 10 of the finalists for the opportunity to apply
for a grant of up to $100,000 and win support in proposal-writing to enable the further development of
submitted ideas.

It is often out of necessity that 1.8 billion people find their livelihoods in the informal economy –the
business enterprises and jobs that exist partially or completely outside of government
regulation.Informal workers lack basic safety nets like pensions and health insurance, and are typically
without recourse if they are denied pay or are compelled to work in unsafe conditions. Improving
working conditions, legal rights, and social benefits for informal workers would open new pathways to
economic and social empowerment for millions of poor or vulnerable people worldwide.

“The Rockefeller Foundation is looking to tap the ingenuity and dedication of today’s social innovators
to address the world’s most urgent challenges and ensure that informal workers canachieve equitable
growth, all while building resilience in an increasingly volatile world,” said Dr. Judith Rodin, President of
The Rockefeller Foundation. “Together we can chart new paths that will transform the livesofthe billions
working in informal economies across the globe.”

Informal employment is a significant and growing part of the world’s economy; it accounts for around
50% of employment in North Africa and in Latin America, 65% of employment in Asia, and 72% in Sub-
Saharan Africa. Given the vast number of informal workers, it is important to spur new innovations that
improve worker’s livelihoods in the informal economy.

Ideas for the 2013Centennial Innovation Challenge will be accepted online at
challenge.rockefellerfoundation.orguntil the deadline on April1, 2013. This competition is subject to
eligibility requirements, official terms and conditions, and is void where restricted or prohibited by
law.Full details and official terms and conditions can also be found at the competition website.
