Black Tie International:
Asia Society: Asia Game Changer Awards

亚洲创变者


Report by:
Black Tie Magazine 特约记者 Cathy Han 现场获悉

Asia Society honored Jack Ma, Chairman of the Alibaba Group, and 12 other leaders and institutions as its inaugural class of Asia Game Changers. The ceremony, held at the United Nations, recognized those making a transformative and positive difference for the future of Asia and the world. Honorees included Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai 
and Shanghai Normal University professor 
Zhang Minxuan.

Jack Ma, who was recognized as Asia Game Changer of the Year for his philanthropic contributions and innovative vision, spoke last at the ceremony.

"I never thought I'd have a chance to be at the United Nations," Ma said, who recounted his company's rise from humble beginnings. "Small is beautiful," he told the audience, adding that he was there to represent "all the small guys."  Drawing on his early years as a teacher, Ma said that that as an educator "You believe knowledge will change people's lives," and explained that for him, the title CEO is an acronym for "Chief Education Officer" of his company.

Education activist Malala Yousafzai also addressed the ceremony via video message from Birmingham, where she is completing her studies.

"I thank the Asia Society for this honor, being included in [this] list of remarkable people," Yousafzai said. "There are so many countries and issues that children are suffering through, but there are game changers as well who are going to speak, who are going to change the game and who are going to work for their future.
We have to do it together."

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon congratulated the Asia Game Changers at the ceremony. Ban saluted the "array of remarkable Asians" being honored, noting that "the world got a head start" on the evening's proceedings with last week's announcement that the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize would be shared by two Asians, the Pakistani Yousafzai and India's Kailash Satyarthi.

Honorees were selected based on input from Asia Society's global network.
The 2014 awardees are:

   Game Changer of the Year Jack Ma, Chairman, Alibaba Group,
 
For history-making business and philanthropy in China

   Shigeru Ban, Founder, Shigeru Ban Architects, For finding beauty, and hope, in the landscapes of disaster

   Madhav Chavan, Co-Founder and CEO, Pratham Education Foundation, For bringing the gift of literacy to millions of Indians

   Illac Diaz, Founder, MyShelter Foundation and Liter of Light, For bringing light, literally, to so many lives

   Fashion Girls for Humanity, For demonstrating that 'looking good' and 'doing good' can be one and the same

   Kuntoro Mangkusubroto, Minister and Senior Advisor to the Indonesian President, For providing a brilliant blueprint for responding to disaster

   Saad Mohseni, Chairman, MOBY Group, For bringing news, information and entertainment to a barren landscape

   Jacqueline Novogratz, Founder and CEO, Acumen, For changing the way the world tackles poverty

   Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Founder, SOC Films and President, The Citizens Archive of Pakistan, For eye-opening films that give voice to the voiceless

   Playing for Change, For using the power of music to spread a
global message of hope

   Pawan Sinha, Professor, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT, For a truly visionary approach to treating India's blind

   Malala Yousafzai, Education activist, For continuing to dream, and fight for girls the world over, after living a nightmare

   Zhang Minxuan, Professor, Shanghai Normal University, For leveling the playing field by providing quality education to millions in China

 

"The Asia Game Changer Awards are designed to fill a glaring gap—a lack of recognition of people who are truly transforming ideas into action and improving lives in Asia," said Asia Society President Josette Sheeran. "Our inaugural honorees represent an extraordinary range of geography and achievement. What they share in common are vision, passion and proven impact, wherever and however they happen to be changing the world."

本月19日,阿里巴巴上市即将满30天。而在不到一个月的时间里,马云已经多次往返美国开展他新的业务。

据亚洲协会会长施静书女士(Josette Sheeran)介绍,“亚洲协会设立首个也是唯一的用以表彰当今亚洲地区真正创变者的奖项。”该奖项主要是用于奖励在各自领域、通过各种方式改变着这个世界的先锋者。

施静书说,“马云先生的阿里巴巴集团及其深远的中国慈善构想正是对创变者敢于开创先河之风的最佳诠释,这使他当之无愧地在我们首年度‘创变者’中荣登榜首”。
