2015 Through Our Instagram Lens

Hundreds of mayors joined Mayor @AnneHidalgo and @MikeBloomberg in #Paris for the #Cities4Climate Summit to highlight the important steps local leaders are taking to fight #ClimateChange around the world. #COP21

In 2015, our work spanned the globe and the spectrum of opportunities, from safeguarding public health on the roads and encouraging local climate action to boosting the arts and empowering women entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Take an Instagram tour through some of the moments and milestones that made up our year.


@MikeBloomberg: Congratulations to the winners of the @BloombergDotOrg Awards for Global Tobacco Control. Their leadership has led to major reductions in global tobacco use and improved the lives of millions in their countries.

@BloombergDotOrg: Thanks @LEDA_Scholars, @PosseFoundation, Gates Millennium Scholars, and @We_Are_Questbridge scholars for your insights on our #CollegeAccess program.

@MikeBloomberg: Prime Minister @NarendraModi wisely recognizes the vital role cities can play in building a strong future for India, especially if local innovation is encouraged and rewarded. The #SmartCities Challenge will help bring new ideas to improve the quality of life in some of the biggest and fastest-growing cities in India and the world.

@MikeBloomberg: Great to see the @CooperHewitt design pen supported by @BloombergDotOrg’s #BloombergConnects program in action last night.

@BloombergDotOrg: “Gleaners” from local communities along the Tañon Strait collect shellfish and other marine life to supplement their diets and incomes. The health of those near the shore directly impacts the abilities of families to feed themselves and make a living. Photo by Yasmin Arquiza.
