Fordham Social Innovation 

This week in innovation...

Sustainability in the news...

Historic climate change rallies swept the globe. Hundreds of thousands of people rallied for climate action on the eve of the U.N. climate summit in Paris, carrying signs that blared “No Planet B” and “2015 Hottest Year Ever," and marking what may have been the biggest day of climate action ever. 
Tech's most influential leaders are teaming up to solve climate change through their new Breakthrough Energy Coalition. Launched by Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan and Bill Gates, the group will help cover gaps in government funding and invest in zero-carbon energy technology.
