Welcome to Pando.

We create hope through action.

We’re making LA a community of more resilient communities.

Pando works at the intersection of education and public agencies to implement Los Angeles County’s sustainability goals.

We forge collaborations, and generate solutions and practical plans.

We make courageous things happen in solidarity with the Earth and its people.

We bring together people who show every day that they are passionate about Los Angeles and its future.

Because if you care about LA’s future, you care about sustainability and other people.

We have a process for project acceleration that can light fires in the hearts of the best and brightest to implement sustainability in the LA basin.

But these are not pie-in-the-sky projects. They are practical, sensible efforts at dozens of locations across the Southland.

Pando is about the bravest of our better angels working to muster and inspire the people who are imagining the unimaginable:

A brighter and better future for the 10 million people who call LA home.
