Unleashing Climate Innovation Through Powerful Partnerships

This month, as the United Nations General Assembly hosted its 78th session to assess our global advancement toward the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, our dedication to #MakingOpportunityUniversal grows stronger than ever. 

It’s the age of climate decision. And thinking outside the box is critical to achieving progress on our most urgent priority: tackling climate change and its impacts for the well-being of humanity. 

That’s why The Rockefeller Foundation announced a commitment of $1 billion over the next five years to ignite transformative actions to slow or reverse climate change. 

To achieve that, we’ll rely on potent collaborations to drive innovative change. In this quarter’s Matter of Impact, we’ve gathered remarkable stories of change fueled by dynamic alliances—partnerships between artists and herbalists, data scientists and policy implementors, museums and farmers, and more.

In collaboration, they are harnessing the power of artificial intelligence, reducing carbon emissions via local food purchases, delivering clean, reliable energy to rural India, and improving the health of both people and the planet.

Join us in celebrating — and sharing — the inspiring work of these featured grantees.
