Mike Bloomberg  Entrepreneur, philanthropist, and three-term mayor of New York City

Great ideas can transcend city limits and great local leaders can transform the world. With programs spanning across nearly 480 cities in Government Innovation, Bloomberg Associates, the Arts, Education, the Environment, Public Health, Founder’s Projects and Bloomberg LP. Learn more about the progress @BloombergDotOrg made to improve the performance of governments and the lives of citizens in communities far and wide this past year. (Link in profile)

Noncommunicable diseases account for nearly 70% of global deaths – but many are preventable. In order to bring greater awareness to this solvable public health crisis, citizens must be informed on what these diseases are, the health and economic burden they cause, and what can be done to prevent and reduce them.

Congratulations and best of luck to @RiceUniversity's class of 2018. As you go out into the world, I urge you to do what honesty requires:
1️⃣ Recognize that no one, nor either party, has a monopoly on good ideas.
2️⃣ Judge events based on what happened, not who did it.
3️⃣ Hold yourself and our leaders to the highest standards of ethics and morality.
4️⃣ Respect the knowledge of scientists.
5️⃣ Follow the data, wherever it leads.
6️⃣ Listen to people you disagree with – without trying to censor them or shout over them.
7️⃣ And have the courage to say things that your own side does not want to hear.

@Bloomberg’s spirit of service and giving back is an important part of our company culture. Last weekend, volunteers participated in @JohnsHopkinsU’s annual Hopkins in Action Day of Service, helping to make an immediate, positive impact in Baltimore communities. @10KSB_Baltimore

Met with some future leaders at @Bloomberg today for Take Your Kids to Work Day. They learned about our company, including how the Bloomberg Terminal works. (Plus, they got to try our snacks.) They’ll have lots to talk about at school tomorrow!

Their Majesties the King and Queen of the Belgians are great supporters of our efforts to fight climate change and more – we owe them a big thanks for the work they have done to build a strong future for Belgium, for Europe, and for our world. Honored to host them tonight at @BloombergDotOrg.

The Trump administration’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement last year left many climate leaders fearful that progress on climate change would come to a halt. Ahead of Earth Day tomorrow, what we need is a conversation on hope – not fear. “Climate of Hope,” my book with Carl Pope, shows how U.S. cities, businesses and citizens are delivering on America’s Pledge and continuing to lead on climate action – no matter what happens in Washington.

I’ve always believed that businesses have a responsibility to be good neighbors, and we’ve also seen how being a sustainable company is just good business. From cleaning up rivers in Tokyo and building bikes in DC, to planting trees in Berlin, Brussels, Cape Town, Edinburgh and São Paulo, to getting Governors Island ready for the spring season in New York, @Bloomberg employees are hard at work to make the world’s cities greener. On #EarthDay and every day, we’re committed to supporting sustainability and environmental awareness to preserve natural resources and protect our planet. Check out @BloombergService for more photos from #NationalVolunteerWeek.

It is in government's interest to act on the public health challenges we face today. Noncommunicable diseases are responsible for 70 percent of all global deaths but receive just one percent of funding. Great discussion today at @The_IMF Spring Meetings with Managing Director Christine Lagarde about how government and the finance industry can work together and save lives.

Congratulations on The Masters win, @PReedGolf, and thanks for stopping by @Bloomberg today. Let me know if you need some pro tips for your next tournament🏌️‍♂️

Congrats to my friend and @Spotify founder Daniel Ek on going public today. Disruptive innovation now has a playlist.

The Boss meets the boss.
