Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Three-Term Mayor of New York City

Michael R. Bloomberg was the 108th Mayor of the City of New York. During his term, his passion for public health has led to ambitious new health strategies that have become national models, including a ban on smoking in all indoor workplaces, as well as parks and beaches. On 31 January 2014, he was appointed as the UN’s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, assisting the UNSG in consultations with mayors and related key stakeholders to raise political will and mobilize action among cities as part of a long-term strategy to advance efforts on climate change.
