The foundation seeks nominees for two different awards - one for lifetime leadership and one for new ideas and activism. Nominees should have opened our eyes to a new way of seeing and understanding New York City; generated new ways to think about the development and preservation of urban environments (specifically in New York City); and/or have demonstrated an innovative approach to how we think about neighborhoods and l solve the problems within them.
Nominations may be made by anyone, and should be submitted through the Rockefeller Foundation Web site. The 2011 Jane Jacobs Medals will be awarded to the recipients at a reception in the fall of 2011.
Visit the Rockefeller Foundation Web site for complete program information and nomination procedures.
