Our goal is to turn hope into action to solve the world’s biggest problems.
And we’re succeeding.
We’re making the world a community of more resilient communities.
To do that, we actually do three things:
- WE GATHER PEOPLE. We bring diverse people together to grapple with these big problems.
- WE HOLD EVENTS. We run workshops, called Pando Blitzes, where we challenge people to generate solutions and practical plans.
- WE GET RESULTS. We help them make these courageous things happen at a local level, through the Pando Accelerator.
Want to help us?
I’m with Pando
We’re inspired by Pando, the one-tree forest that interconnects and nurtures tens of thousands of trees through a common rootball. And motivated by the big ideas it symbolizes.
Being Pando means I belong to you, you belong to me, we belong to each other.
It includes what Pope Francis describes as “integral ecology” and philosopher John Cobb calls “ecological civilization.”
Among our key projects: PANDO DAYS is bringing together 11 of Los Angeles County’s art and design colleges to change the game for local resiliency. It’s the most ambitious undertaking of its kind. Ever.
Join us for a Sneak Preview on February 16 and for the Hollywood showcase on April 25. And, if you really care, support the amazing projects that the colleges are developing. Go here to learn more.
